We mean everything from problem structuring (what decision needs to be made, who needs to be involved, what information is needed?) to complex analysis of difficult choices (which technology or plan is best?) to on-ground implementation (action plans, ownership strategies and real bricks-and-mortar projects). We're not content with reports. We want to see action. And our experience with implementation makes us better analysts. On any given project, we can play a variety of roles:
Honest Brokers - We help people involved in contentious, high-stakes problems work together to evaluate and reach agreement on creative solutions. Skilled analysts and faciltators, we have no agenda other than making sure people make informed choices using rigorous, transparent and defensible practices.
Strategists - In our core practice areas, we know the business. We understand the resources, the technologies, the policy context. Outside our core areas, we help you look at old problems in new ways, relying on our decision analysis roots to tell us which lines of inquiry and analysis are likely to be productive. Either way, we help you design state of the art policies and plans that meet multiple objectives, are robust to key uncertainties, and respond to stakeholder concerns.
Implementers - We do what it takes to turn great ideas into change we can see and feel and measure, with action plans that take technical, management and political realities into account.
Enablers - We help capable, dedicated people reach higher than they could alone. We provide training and mentoring to help them improve management and decision making capacity over time.
Explorers - Ever searching for better solutions, we work with some of the world's best researchers to figure out how to make new ideas work in real-world settings.
