qdaservices-ethos

Our ethos 

We have a clear ethos that underlies everything we do. 

Impartial advice

We have known the developers of all the leading CAQDAS packages for many years and work closely with them. However, we operate completely independently - we have no commercial ties with any software developer or vendor. 

This is intentional and very important to us, and it means you get impartial, objective advice and services that are right for you, never influenced by any commission-based relationship.

Tailored services

We are driven by a desire to facilitate high-quality analysis and enable appropriate use of software in individual contexts. This means that we take the time to understand your methodological and practical needs and we tailor our services accordingly. 

We do not promote any software or analytic strategy over others but advise clients according to their needs. You are the expert in the specifics of your project. Our breadth and depth of experience and knowledge means we can best facilitate and guide your work. 

Researcher-teachers

We believe it is essential to be actively involved in research in order to be able to teach, consult and coach appropriately.

We are all active researchers and teachers, with different backgrounds and skills. We work on a range of projects and share our expertise to ensure our clients and students receive the best possible service.

Testimonials

So often I have attended training courses and wondered what I was doing there, feeling my life slip away into oblivion while I could be doing other more useful and interesting activities such as watching iron rust or paint flake. However, Christina's was superb. It was exactly what I had hoped for. Pitched at precisely the right level and presented in a very clear, engaging way. Being able to spend time having some real content and context given by someone who really understands the software and researcher's needs, along with a sensible amount of time to try things out and get help was great. I'm much more confident about getting to grips with my data now.
