Governments at all levels face complexity in responding to public needs, understanding the relationships underpinning diverse programs of work, and translating commitments into action.
We can help you to clarify needs, identify the right tools and collaboration models, and then develop an evidence base that supports your goals.
Whatever problem you are trying to solve for the public good, we are here to help.
We build enduring partnerships with the public sector and do the work to make sure we understand the policy context.
At the core of our approach is a multidisciplinary partnership model. We bring design methods together with other disciplines, perspectives and approaches so we can tackle complex problems together.
We support governments to help achieve public outcomes. As trusted partners we can support elements of a broader transformation or policy agenda or complete end-to-end solution, policy or service design.
What we do
Understand complex ecosystems and locate opportunities ripe for change
Paper Giant’s tools and methods help you to locate the best opportunities to act, build the evidence and business case you require, develop strategies and frameworks to guide future directions, prototype services and policy interventions and bring together diverse stakeholders and users to create shared understanding and collective action.
Tools such as systems mapping, user research and blueprints can bring about shared understanding of complex problems and support departments and teams to see the relationships and patterns across policies and programs to identify leverage points.
Understand user needs to make citizen-centric decisions
The better you understand how citizens are affected by your policy or service, the more likely you are to design solutions that deliver real value for them. But finding and recruiting the right people to answer the right questions requires a robust and tested approach.
Paper Giant has extensive experience conducting effective user research with the Australian public sector to inform citizen-centric decision making and evidence-based policy.
