Straightforward | Insightful | Timely

Pragmatica combines evaluation and research methods with complexity sciences, strategic management and organizational research approaches. We work collaboratively to address your questions using mixed-methods in innovative ways, to find useful and actionable answers – fast.

We ask important questions to explore seemingly intractable situations while taking account of real-world time and budget constraints. Our style of facilitation helps you navigate through puzzling situations to make wise choices.


We work with central government, local government, NGO’s and private organisations.  We are experienced in the education, health, mental health and primary sectors. We have experience evaluating environmental issues and regional development.  Recent focus includes assessing contestable funds and research into better ways of contracting within the public sector.
