Best practice research

We can help our partners make informed business decisions by conducting best practice research across the public and private sectors.

SDS look at ways that successful organisations operate and compare your local authority to highlight areas where your services could improve.


Our local government and public services partners regularly meet up during our quarterly networking meetings to discuss their current projects and share knowledge and findings with one another.

Creating a culture of innovation

SDS can help to ensure that your services remain up to date and in line with what your customers need and expect. The team discover thought-provoking concepts and ensure you are using technology effectively to reduce costs and become more efficient.

I have always found the results of research work undertaken by SDS to be very good and have been useful in our work.
