ISB Global & CIWM ‘Software Technology Review & Alignment Research’

In Spring 2022 the CIWM and ISB Global launched a research project to better help understand perception and use of software in the UK waste industry. The project started with an extensive questionnaire, then in November 2022 the teams presented the information to a focus group to gather greater insight. The initial analysis was then collated and further presented in a webinar to a different sample audience to check on answers, help alleviate bias and to ensure impartiality.

Phase 3 is now underway and will see the information collated from phases 1 (questionnaire and focus group) and 2 (webinar) to produce a report detailing the results of the research. We have posted some of the research findings and an insight into the productivity of the UK sector.
