DECISION FOCUS
A more rational approach to problem solving and decision making.

What is Decision Focus?
Decision Focus is a process for problem solving and decision making that's based on principles of logic and critical thinking. It is a set of tools used to resolve problems, make business judgments, implement plans and break complex issues down into manageable pieces. It helps organizations get the full benefit from the knowledge and thinking capabilities of their people.

Amidst the constant drive for results and the need for speed in business, people struggle with applying a rational approach to problem solving in their everyday jobs. Without a process, things go wrong:

bull_pur.gif (109 bytes) Opinions masquerading as facts.
bull_pur.gif (109 bytes) Defensiveness, finger pointing.
bull_pur.gif (109 bytes) Erroneous conclusions.

Decision Focus takes knowledge and experience and funnels it through a system designed for better results. We work with organizations to install the Decision Focus tools into systems and procedures used in teams, projects, processes and everyday tasks and assignments.

DECISION FOCUS can be learned via classroom training, live web classes, or independent study. Click here for more information on each learning format (LearnOpt.pdf)
