Decision Consequence Analysis

Decision Consequence Analysis

We develop solutions that allow clients to understand the consequences of the decisions they face, gain consensus across multiple entities (i.e., Potentially Responsible Parties, agency representatives, trustees, etc.) or management levels, and improve the quality of their decisions. We have pioneered the application of Decision Consequence Analysis (DCA)—a structured process that combines statistics, probability theory, utility theory, game theory and awareness of human psychological barriers—to help clients proceed wisely when facing uncertainty.
 
Decision Consequence Analysis informs critical decisions through a highly structured collaboration between data, individuals, and group experience. It provides for a robust and dynamic assessment of factors impacting our client’s overall objectives, as well as, feedback mechanisms to mitigate against unintended outcomes during execution. Our proprietary Facilitated DCA® approach takes the process even further by showing the impact of decisions on all parties and bringing structure to the chaos of group conflict.  With Facilitated DCA®, lasting consensus and defendable decisions are achieved.
