Socratic promises senior team involvement at every step.

What it looks like to work with Socratic.
Scope and Plan
Analyze and Report
Socialize and Consult
Build a Relationship
You and a senior researcher at Socratic will discuss project requirements.

Typically, basic questions include: What are we wanting to learn? How will the findings be used? And, who do we want to invite to the research?

We seek input from both sides before we approve and finalize the plan.
You and a senior researcher at Socratic will develop materials (e.g. survey, discussion guide, stimuli to present in the research). Together, we will review, revise, and finalize materials.
This is where the larger Socratic team gets involved for all remaining steps in the project (e.g. programming surveys, prepping for data collection, recruiting research respondents, etc.).

You should expect frequent email updates from us during the project.

Provide you access to Socratic Online for self-service and real-time access to data collection statistics, data tables, and data files.

We will also look to schedule a work session with you to review early data and discuss the story and narrative that is emerging – this valuable two-way input helps ensure the final deliverables are relevant and impactful.
Analyze and Report
In this stage, we are busy at work creating the final deliverables. Our objective is to deliver something that is ready-to-share at your organization.
As your research partner, we are always available for presentations, additional work sessions, and follow-up exploration.

The relationship does not end once deliverables are shared – we are committed to our shared success.
