How We Work
Our goal is to make a difference for the public. That means working on a few key issues, with an emphasis on projects that can produce consequential outcomes, foster new ideas, attract partners, avoid partisanship or wishful thinking, and achieve measurable results that serve the public interest.
From basic research to technical assistance and advocacy, the foundation of our work is careful planning; a consistent focus on facts, science and data; strong partnerships; and a commitment to stewardship, innovation, and measurable results.
Whether it is changing policy and practices, tracking trends, or improving life in our home town, we seek tangible results by pursuing specific, measurable goals. That means maintaining a commitment to a rigorous, analytical, and evidence-based approach.
