Hexagon Research and Consulting has extensive experience of using a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research tools; from mind numbing number crunching (the quantitative) through to thought provoking and probing questioning (the qualitative). By utilising a combination of desk based research, surveys, case studies, focus groups, in-depth interviews and other diagnostic tools we ensure our research provides clients with a sound evidence based approach to policy development and decision making.
