Our whitepaper explores the gaps that decision makers face with every decision, and focuses on how to mitigate the barriers and biases present in every decision making process. We illustrate how decision making must be elevated to a new "level of thinking" to help individuals and organizations make high quality decisions. Our paper covers: 7 basic decision making steps, 4 decision making gaps, and 8 individual & 6 group barriers and biases.
We work with forward-thinking businesses to help them make better decisions, encourage candor and eliminate group think using bias-free Decision Spaces™ A selection of our clients share their insights and experiences, illustrating practical examples of how Powernoodle has benefited their organizations.
