Augmented Decision-Making is the use of modeling and analysis in finding solutions and making choices.
Complex problems that are characterized by uncertainty and multiple factors are difficult to analyze objectively and accurately. Processes analysis and business model visualization combined with numerical tools to build desired scenarios give a powerful instrument to support decision-making.
We integrate the below approaches in our methodology:
Systems thinking provides a framework for a decision-making process. It breaks down the challenge that you are facing into manageable components. The objectives are represented through values that describe the desired solution. And the business environment is defined as functions and elements that interact with each other affecting those values.
Having such a framework grants control over the entire decision process. At the same time, you can deep into the details of all the factors and corresponding uncertainty and see how it influences the overall picture.
Correct analysis is the core of measuring what the consequences of numerous factors for your business are. We use tailor-made and adjusted for your specific needs, tools for process analysis, data analysis, uncertainty evaluation, and risk assessment.
The core of our methodology is the sequential use of those tools. Findings from one give better input to the other. A logical path is created that brings the desired solution closer with each step.
Once the analysis is completed, we build a model of your business challenge and render scenarios that will represent workable solutions, existing uncertainty, associated risk, and measure how they address the challenge.
The complexity of an entire business environment is turned into a simulation where you can try whatever you want with no real risk associated. The decision-making is brought down to simply selecting the scenario that suits you the best.
