Formed in 1990 in response to the changing environment for cultural organisations, Positive Solutions has developed into a highly specialised and client focused company serving non-profit, government and commercial clients, operating from our office in Brisbane, Australia.
Our services include research, policy and cultural planning, facilities and precinct planning, business planning and organisational development, visual art projects and board development.
Our work is driven by the following guiding principles:
Quality - to provide services based on the best knowledge and research available.
Effectiveness - to provide services which are of practical benefit to the client, and to assist in implementation where appropriate.
Economy - to secure valuable results within the limits of the client's budget and timeframe.
Partnership - to work strategically with relevant agencies, and collaboratively with clients, to utilise existing knowledge and expertise.
Inclusiveness - to adopt consultative processes that result in a high level of client and stakeholder ownership.
Contextual sensitivity - to recognise the importance of cultural and organisational context while developing our advice.
Positive Solutions is distinguished by four factors:
- Our specialism in the cultural and non profit sectors - our consultants are drawn from these sectors and our expertise supplemented by the skills of a range of project partners, all specialists in their own fields.
- Our experience - we have successfully completed projects for hundreds of clients, in the UK, Australia and elsewhere, including strategic research projects, policy development, market research, business planning, training and organisational review and development.
- Our careful project planning - all our projects are characterised by thorough pre-planning in close consultation with the client, to ensure that objectives and outcomes are clearly understood, and that our research and consulting processes are appropriate.
- Our dedication to practical results - we place the highest value on delivering action-oriented recommendations and implementation plans.
