Academics are not the experts, managers are the experts - what fitting-in can do is to help managers to use their expertise.
The work started with a three day snapshot audit and following acceptence of the report we were asked to commence a full scale action research project.
Ethos Two was the result of several months working with firefighters, middle, senior and strategic managers and with the FBU.
From this research we established the principle that it was possible to create change but only when firefighters were given a real choice.

Fitting-in can provide a cultural audit that not only feeds back on attitudes in your service it also provides an outside view on how your organisation is thinking at all levels that is supported by recommendations for focussing change.This is what Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service had to say about the Ethos research, communications and training project:
"The Service are delighted with the research and reports produced by "Fitting-in. We believe that your original hypothesis and work undertaken in Merseyside has resulted in a ground breaking piece of work that can only serve to inform the wider fire and rescue communities."

Academic theory without practice is a waste - practice without theory may just be dumb
