Economic Development Consultants

what we do

Policy and Research:
We can conduct policy and research studies to help make the case for economic development. Kada undertakes reviews, insightful case studies and analysis of transferable practice.

Evaluation:
We can help you evaluate the impacts of government funded programmes affecting people and businesses. We tell clients the true impact of their projects and programmes or how much they really cost or are saving. Kada staff have led small-scale in-depth reviews and large high profile national consultations and surveys. Our work has complied with the requirements of many funding regimes.

Strategy development and implementation:
We have helped many clients design and develop economic and labour market strategies – typically these are accompanied by robust action plans to assist clients in policy and implementation roles. We have quantification expertise and offer a range of consultation mechanisms to suit your audience, budget and local circumstances. We offer insights on how best to: configure a programme, understand an investment and develop effective interventions.

Economic Analysis:
With access to a wide range of official and commercial data sets we can help you to prioritise economic development. We can tell you about the make-up, dynamics and performance of your local area. We have completed national labour market studies and local economic assessments.
