Cense Research + Design is a design and evaluation-driven innovation consultancy that helps organize, develop, design and evaluate innovations aimed at influencing human systems.
We support organizations tackling complex problems to develop a mindset, a skillset, and a toolset for designing sustainable change.
To borrow from Proust: we uncover new eyes.
We help people see the value in what they do and build the capacity to adapt to changing conditions and make impact more visible.
To innovate is to design. To evaluate those designs is to create innovation impact and ensure that programs both have the right design and that it is designed right.
Successful systems change requires systems thinking, strategic foresight and understanding the social, community and organizational psychology of how to inspire, engage, mobilize and sustain changes.
We bring these elements together in service of creating sustainable, healthy human service and systems innovations that have high positive impact. We help our clients and partners to envision where things are going not just reflect on where things are and design your offerings to create the future, not just respond to it.
