In Situ has worked with key organizations and community leaders in Washington DC and around the world at every point in the research process. Informed by your project’s specific demands, we apply our firsthand knowledge to ensure each decision is a strategic step toward a strong, successful study.
We think outside the box when it comes to harnessing vital and frequently overlooked sources of qualitative data. Where convention falls short, we offer our clients a fresh suite of resources and methods, each hand-picked according to what works best for the problem at hand—not what’s been done before.
Our model is designed to support our clients’ long-term financial sustainability by delivering large-firm expertise at a more affordable cost. Through our strategic approach to team building, as well as our state-of-the-art virtual services, we work to help research teams conserve more of their resources for their ongoing needs.
We know measurable impact is everything. We rely on rigorous documentation and evaluation to ensure every step of the research process maximizes value, efficiency and on-the-ground results. By incorporating rich socio-cultural data, we also increase the likelihood that change will truly take root in a given community.
"Though the way we get the work done may change to fit the unique needs of a particular project, one thing never changes: In Situ always places local researchers at the center of the work to make qualitative research a strategic, financially sustainable and truly effective part of our clients’ mixed-method applications all over the world."
