Having worked on hundreds of behaviour change projects since 2011, we reckon we’ve got a pretty good idea of how to collaborate with our partners to find evidence of which behaviour change program is most likely to work.
We use a proprietary change kit known as the BWA Method to unpack problems, identify and prioritise behaviours, investigate the drivers and barriers of those behaviours and trial interventions. This method gives us evidence of what works.
Our reputation for delivering rigorous research means that many new projects come our way via word of mouth. However, we’re keen to make some new acquaintances!
Advice you can trust
BehaviourWorks Australia is not a consultancy per se. Rather, we’re a university-based research unit that helps organisations understand behavioural problems and develop evidence-based solutions.
We believe that having a practice grounded in academia gives us – and our partners – a distinct advantage. It means that our researchers are independent and trained to seek out and interpret data and provide qualified advice on the social, psychological, economic and environmental dimensions of everyday problems.
While grounded in academia, many of our researchers have worked in government and industry and are sensitive to the systems and processes of business. In fact, our researchers are passionate about bridging the research-practice gap and working collaboratively with practitioners.
Our partners tell us that we’re innovative, agile and a lot fun to work with; an organisation that doesn’t just focus on theory but on solving real-world problems.
There are two ways of working with us.
1. Consortium partners are generally organisations which have worked with us for some time and want to enter into a more formal arrangement to enable knowledge sharing and capability building.
