SocialPioneers™ is the Social Transformation Agency for government and civil society.
Working with Evidence at the Leading Edge
Resilient Social Progress™ is our passion. We are an advocate of, and leading expert in, social transformation as a means of achieving higher levels of social and environmental performance where there is evident need for improving the lives and prospects of citizens and their communities.
We specialise in high impact social change, cultural reform, system redesign, corporate modernisation, and institution building, offering expert advice, services and support throughout the transformation journey.
We will help you be clear about what is fit for purpose and what is not, what good looks like, and how to get there. We will also work with you to shift mindsets, transform cultures and practices, and develop the leadership capability that will enable transformation to be internally driven, devised, owned and sustained.
Receptive, Responsive, Resilient
Building cultural receptivity and responsiveness to transformation goals and efforts requires careful handling of perceptions as well as potentials. This applies both to managing the people involved and to monitoring and evaluating the transformation programme.
We recognise that traditional ‘hard’ indicators of performance do not adequately capture the all-important ‘soft’ changes in attitudes and behaviours, as may be reflected in a newfound sense of common purpose, the growth of trust-based relationships, or a commitment to encourage initiative and creativity. That is why we use a range of measures and insights to assess the quality and effectiveness of transformation across the various stages of transformation design, development and implementation.
Successful transformation takes time and involves risk. Our proven models and methods afford ample room for adjustment, agility, and the benefits of learning.
The project has much to demonstrate in terms of transferable learning. Achieving an integrated pathway for offenders can lead to real gains in personal development and employability, with probable consequential gains in reduced re-offending and welfare dependency, and the creation of additional economic value through productive labour.
