Policy and Strategy

Outstanding evidence-led policy development and bold strategic plans.

Policy that unlocks public value

Outstanding policy reform in today’s public purpose sector needs news ways of thinking, new ways of engaging, and new ways of collaborating across organisational and jurisdictional boundaries.

At Cube, we design innovative models of engagement that bring the right people to the policy development table. Our work includes policy review, governance review, and policy development and analysis, including: designing, modelling and formulation; stakeholder engagement & consultation; community engagement; review and analysis; defining policy problems; identifying policy instruments; addressing implementation requirements; monitoring and reporting; and designing and reviewing guides, frameworks and procedures. 

We create clear narratives, cohesive policy settings, and roadmaps for policy implementation and evaluation that cut through and win support from community, partners, stakeholders, funders and authorisers. 

Strategic planning that unleashes potential

We’re excited to work with clients who are ready to be bold, think differently, and shape their future in an uncertain world.

We develop strategic plans that tell an inspiring story about your organisation’s future, and we create business and implementation plans that bring your strategy to life. Our approach includes the use of best-practice tools including SWOT and PESTLE analyses, environment scans, benchmarking, risk assessments, and outcomes frameworks, along with effective stakeholder engagement, community engagement, and workshop facilitation. 

Experience has taught us that the key to exceptional strategic planning is engagement, and the unconstrained contribution of ideas and insights.

The better you engage within and outside your organisation, the better your strategy will be, and we’re experts at making it happen with structure, speed and authenticity.
