The Bayswater Institute provides a range of research, consultancy and professional development services to individuals, groups and organisations as they implement change in our complex, constantly shifting world.
That the rigorous development of methods in social science can assist in understanding and evaluating aspects of the complex world that we live in. That the appropriate use of methods applied in context of real world situations can provide better evidence of real outcomes for people and assist in policy and service development more effectively than mechanised and proceduralised approaches. The goal is to facilitate learning and development that delivers social impact and real outcomes for organisations, people and their families through better utilisation of resources.
