Strategic Decisions

We offer attested methodology and multi-criteria tools for systemic and informed decision-making. The application of established strategy frameworks and concepts are today widely used to help focus the strategic decision making. However, it is often the case that decision-makers and supporting experts do not come to an agreement on the priorities that often are flavoured with values and personal interests.

The use of multiple criteria and inclusion of a number of experts provide a basis for comprehensive analysis of the strategic options.

Our multi-criteria decision tools support the systematic inclusion and analysis of different opinions. Our tools help keeping the discussion with diverging views focused and efficient.
