Data Analytics

We seek to improve service design and delivery through data science. Our approaches include:

Predictive modelling using machine learning: Where could we improve services by predicting outcomes? Or issues?

Experimental testing of marketing and other outreach: Where could our communications be refined to produce better uptake?

Impact analysis in complex systems: Where would measurement of different factors better enable us to act?
