Our work

The Data61 Insight team combines research excellence with business relevance to help governments, businesses and communities navigate change in the digital economy. We analyse emerging trends, drivers and scenarios, and apply modelling approaches to generate insights and inform future strategy and policy decisions.

We offer independent, impartial research and advisory services for clients and stakeholders. Our services focus on translating research to solve real-world problems for business and policy, and help decision makers better prepare for future challenges and opportunities.

Our clients span across the private, not-for-profit and public sectors. Every project is different and we work with our clients and their stakeholders to deliver services that cater for their specific needs.

What we offer

Strategic foresight into trends and drivers. We analyse geopolitical, economic, environmental, social and technological trends, risks and scenarios to help leaders make better decisions for the future, particularly in relation to digital disruption.

Decision-making frameworks to inform and prioritise investment. We use decision-making frameworks (e.g., multi-criteria analysis) to rank the desirability of competing options against factors that may vary in their level of significance for decision makers.

Statistical forecasting of future trends. We use a variety of different statistical models to make long-term forecasts to help decision makers understand the quantitative impact of future economic changes on policy and business environments.

Strategic workshops and consultation sessions. We design and deliver workshops and consultation sessions for clients and stakeholders to help them navigate future changes, or to assist them in developing skills to apply strategic foresight to their own business or organisational processes.

Research into critical national and global challenges. We conduct original research into key issues of national and global significance – particularly around emerging technologies – to ensure we are at the cutting-edge of practice and research into the best solutions.
