Research and synthesis

At Primitive, a huge part of our value is making sense of complex topics, and we really pride ourselves at producing models, theories and approaches that can be used (immediately, if possible). We love that moment when the “a-ha” happens, and our client says “I never thought of it like that”, and then they go out and change something for the better.

We also specialise at synthesising research and evidence with local context or voices to produce directions for program design or strategic planning. Not sure what this looks like? Check out some of our unique contributions below.

What our research and synthesis clients have said:

“Dean does a wonderful job in communicating the depth of data/research in a way that is clear and accessible. I know working with Primitive that I will receive high quality work, will be well informed and guaranteed sound advice. We have worked in two major research projects with Primitive, both were well done and received, and were helpful in enhancing our existing projects.”

Matthew Balane, Inner West Council

“We used Primitive to conduct focus groups for both our clients and staff. The project went extremely well and the quality of the research and presentation of the report were excellent. They managed to elicit some interesting and thought-provoking feedback from the focus groups which has proven to be very useful. We will be more than happy to use Primitive in any future projects.”
