Sound familiar?

You're responsible for making complex, time-sensitive, high-stakes decisions with others. 

But you have to grapple with conflicts of interest, imperfect information, looming deadlines, external pressures, ambiguous goals, differing expectations, domineering personalities, voluminous data, internal politics... 

and you're wasting time in endless discussion.

We help you make better decisions with fewer resources. Our process integrates strong facilitation and our innovative decision-making software.

Our tools reduce risk and prevent common decision-making errors while eliminating the costs of endless meetings and bickering. Our software allows you and others to select and weight evaluation factors and rate alternatives against them. Because each stakeholder participates in the process, decisions are readily accepted, easily implemented, and durable. 

We have over 36 years of experience helping decision makers navigate the intersection of logic and emotion. Our facilitation is structured, objective, and efficient. Scroll down for a sample of our clients.

Sample Public-Sector Clients

Since the mid-1990’s, our principals have successfully facilitated advisory groups in the political spotlight.  Our projects include public policy, land use planning, natural resources, and/or aviation issues, with time horizons that vary from several months to several years. 

We enjoy and excel at bringing groups together surrounding collaborative governance, policy-making, and public involvement.  In particular, we have extensive experience in the intersection of business, policy, politics, science, and law.  Because of our multi-disciplinary approach, we are very successful in integrating complex technical and scientific data into multi-stakeholder, politicized advisory committee forums.

Examples include: 

(1)   Airport Futures: Charting A Course for PDX

(2)  PDX Citizen Advisory Committee

(3)  Columbia River Gorge Air Quality Strategy

(4)  Exempt Use Ground Water Well Policy Consensus Work Group

(5)  I-5 Partnership

(6)  N/NEQ I-5 Broadway-Weidler Plans
