Wordhoard provides research and strategy development services to suit the needs of clients from national organisations to micro-businesses.
Our research takes lots of forms, from desk reviews and stakeholder interviews to competitor analysis and in-destination/in-store legwork! We provide research services for individual businesses and national organisations, reviewing everything from websites that target their customer segment to competing business clusters and destinations, with a view to helping them establish their own market positions, brand identities, and strategies for growth.
We use our research to ground your project and equip you with a realistic sense of its potential. We also help you to identify and deal with any weaknesses and threats you need to take into account.
When the research phase is over, we turn our research findings into usable strategies and roadmaps that take into account the needs of a full range of stakeholders from national organisations, local authorities, and other agencies to businesses, communities, and local stakeholders.
Equipping you to move forward
Research and strategy documents are only effective when they speak clearly to the people who are being asked to deliver on their promise. Those people might be employed across 30 organisations, or they might be the three souls who already have to do everything in your growing business or community group!
In our research and strategy development work, we focus on making sure that stakeholders will have ownership of practical and achievable plans. We also help to deliver training, mentoring, and supports in the implementation phase of your strategy, inspiring the people who will need to make your plans happen, as well as equipping them with the kinds of insights, strategies, and skills they will need to achieve real results.
