Our Partners

Our Partners

Here at 4OC, we develop relationships with smaller companies with specific expertise that, when combined, offer greater impact for our clients.

Morphologic

Pairing Operational Expertise with a No-Code Data Insight Solution.

Morphologic was the first of our partners. It was founded by our very own Emma Adair (how clever is she?!), and we think they offer something really special.

So, what is Morphologic?

The Morphologic no-code, intelligent platform has an outcomes-focused design to support you to establish data-led delivery across your organisation, from understanding where employee effort is best spent, to performance trends insight, to aided decision-making. Morphologic does it all.

It’s fully no code: The people in your team who are the experts in the day-to-day operations can be expert application builders, with every application feeling custom made.

It’s smart: The design and technology enable better decision making through accessible data. This is achieved through an integration of machine learning and a behavioural science framework.

It’s fast: A simple, role-based access control and testing environment enables quick and effective improvement.

It’s secure: There is the option for 2-factor authentication, and your data is held in a secure cloud environment or your own environment.

The Partnership

With 4OC bringing the operational expertise, ensuring that your organisation is ready to adopt digital change that will stick, and Morphologic providing an accessible and agile digital solution, it’s a partnership that just makes sense.

Want to validate existing knowledge or reshape your organisation’s approaches based on insight-led data? We have the answer. Well, Emma does.

UCL

Using System Dynamics research to overhaul public service decision making

So, what is UCL (and more importantly, System Dynamics)?

University College London’s (UCL) Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering designs and delivers research on the interactions between the built environment and health, human wellbeing, productivity, energy use and climate change.

Together, 4OC and UCL recognise there is a major challenge in developing a collaborative understanding of the conflicts and tensions of different neighbourhood issues and prioritisation of problems/solutions.

UCL is working with 4OC to co-develop a stronger understanding of the complex systems that lead to significant delivery problems with publicly funded community services.

 

The goal of this work is to improve the delivery of system strategic priorities (such as population health, social value, second chances and fair criminal services, etc.) within the available resources, whilst engaging local residents, who form a necessary part of the solution.

The Partnership

Using a systems thinking tool called Causal Loop Diagrams, 4OC and UCL are highlighting the interconnections of factors within the test case of West Northamptonshire Council in an exploratory project examining the use of System Dynamics.

The project aims to understand the complexity and leverage points for service delivery, increase systems thinking-based decision making in practice, and support the mitigation of risk relating to inequalities.

By bringing together 4OC on-the-ground realities with cutting-edge academic research and theory, we are trailblazing what it truly means to deliver public social and economic value.
