The Method Book

The BehaviourWorks Method is a tried and tested approach to helping organisations understand why, how – and at what points – research can be used to identify which behaviour change approach is most likely to address policy problems. Here we share The Method as a practical toolkit for helping behaviour change practitioners better define the problem (Exploration), identify 'who needs to do what differently' (Deep Dive) and trial interventions (Application).
