In Leapfrog we are undertaking 2 different types of project, short projects and major projects. These are described in more detail below, the function of these projects is to work directly with our external partners (both established and new) to help them directly with they consultation needs but also to use these projects as test beds for developing creative consultation tools that can be shared more widely through this website‘s tools and toolboxes but also using social media.
Short projects have about 8–10 days worth of effort associated with them, they allow us to respond quickly to challenges or opportunities. They also offer us the possibility of undertaking more experimental or high risk projects.
Major Projects last for around 8 months and represent a significant investment of time and resources. Our current plans include undertaking 5 major projects in Leapfrog. Major projects will work with multiple partners looking at strategically important challenges in the area of creative consultation.
