Learning is the most productive human activity

The purpose of WEB Research is to understand how adults learn at work and to use that knowledge to improve the effectiveness of any organisation. We provide research & evaluation and change management services and business consultancy.

We improve the productivity, innovation, skills and sustainability of organisations and their people by using intervention methods we have learned and further developed by working with people in organisations.

WEB Research provides research (policy, operations, programmes), evaluation (case studies, action research, developmental research), management consulting (reviews of services, systems and structures) and advisory services to the public sector (education, labour), large and small businesses, Crown Research Institutes (with a primary industry or manufacturing focus), secondary school Boards of Trustees and ITOs and PTEs.  Get an overview of what we do.

Our methods draw on Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) and Developmental Work Research (DWR). We are active members of the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research (ISCAR) and are world leaders in adapting CHAT and DWR for use in workplaces.  WEB is a New Zealand SME. For clients this ensures that we understand running a small business and we understand New Zealanders.
