Decision Analysis

Delivering practical, time-proven solutions to business risks

Endeavor’s approach to Decision Analysis (DA) includes processes and tools useful in making a variety of major strategic decisions, addressing significant questions like “How can I . . .”

  • Better Understand the Opportunity so that the bounds, scope, objectives, preferences, risks, and key decisions are clear and agreed upon
  • Engage Stakeholders to capture their inputs and perspectives for problem structuring and to maintain their engagement throughout the process
  • Incorporate Risk, Uncertainty, and Divergent Perspectives to understand options and key information gaps
  • Create Alternative Solution Approaches that test a broad range of divergent perspectives on the “right” solution and different ideas for value creation
  • Analyze Alternatives incorporating both uncertainty and divergent stakeholder perspectives in a compelling, side-by-side comparison focused on learning about value creation and risk mitigation
  • Create a Win-Win Approach to Alternative Selection that uses analytical insights to build a “hybrid” approach that all can agree will be best at creating value and managing risk
  • Achieve a Shared Vision and Alignment among all stakeholders around the hybrid approach and the value proposition
  • Realize Value from successful implementations
