Does Any of This Sound Familiar?

Do you or your organization suffer from the following:

  1. Information overload: With the vast amount of information available in today's digital age, filtering and prioritizing relevant information can be challenging.

  2. Bias and interpretation: Different individuals within an organization may interpret the same information differently, leading to differing opinions on what is relevant and important.

  3. Cost and resource constraints: Conducting environmental scans can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, particularly for smaller organizations with limited budgets.

  4. Accuracy and reliability: The accuracy and reliability of the information gathered during environmental scanning can vary widely, making it difficult to make informed decisions based on the data.

  5. Narrow focus: Organizations may focus too narrowly on their industry or region, missing significant trends or threats in other areas that could impact their business.

  6. Top team not seeing the need: In some cases, the top leadership team may not recognize the importance of environmental scanning or the potential impact of external factors on the organization's success. This can result in a lack of resources or support for conducting regular scans, which may ultimately hinder the organization's ability to adapt to changing circumstances.

If you ticked YES to at least one of these boxes, then you'll find relevant, practical, and doable worksheets in the Toolbox.


Here's an Example

The toolbox is filled with practical methods. For instance, the worksheets for the first step show you how you can focus search on only the information you missed. You'll find out what your blind spots are by taking the opposite of your organization's beliefs about the future.

So no endless widespread search, but focused, quick scans.


Try it Out

I offer a free trial period (one day), so you can test out the toolbox and see if it's the right fit for you and your organization. And if you have any questions or concerns, I am always available to provide support and guidance.


Why Now

Credit crises, Covid, and war in Ukraine showed us that foresight planning is essential for any organization wanting to succeed in today's rapidly changing business landscape. Especially considering the wave of AI that you can see coming!

Introducing the D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox for Strategic Decisions

A toolbox filled to the brim with science-based and real-world tested tweaks, explicitly tailored to executives.  If you want to be confident, decisive, and enjoy strategic decision-making without all the second-guessing, the toolbox is for you:

  • Lose the uncertainty of what the future may bring so that you can enjoy the executive position you worked so hard for.
  • Never again being confused or worried about a strategic decision means that you can focus on what matters: to let your organization grow and do good.
  • Waking up every single morning with a clear mind so that you can be a better parent AND a better leader.
  • Having a track record of accurate decisions means that you are seen as an accomplished executive.
  • Poses confidence and decisiveness to be the mentor and role model for other people climbing the ladder. 


This isn't like any program you've seen or done before...

I'm sure you're sitting there thinking that you've heard all this before. And you're wondering how this toolbox could be any different than every decision-making course or program out there.

Well, let me share a few things with you.

The D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox is like no other program out there. Not only have I designed this specifically for business owners and strategy directors, but I based it on my 24+ years of boardroom experience and my Ph.D. in managerial foresight.

Most other programs out there will leave you:

  • Confused and overwhelmed: They give you either too little or too much to change, and both lead to you remaining in the exact same situation that you're in right now.
  • Applying the same old, same old. Trust me; strategic decision-making does not mean endless broad sweeps of the environment, frustratingly slow discussions low on creativity and high in conformity, and the seemingly unavoidable new business models. That'd only leave you making the same mistakes and craving quick, new fixes.
  • Going back to your old process soon after following their program because it simply wasn't bringing you immediate relief and made in a way that fit your busy days.


The D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox is about giving you laser-focused tweaks to increase decision accuracy, speed, and yield for each step of the decision-making process

Get a detailed look at what you're going to get done:

Discover omissions

1. Discover Omissions

  • Improve the quality of the information underpinning your decisions as a first step to higher accuracy.
  • Identify the unknowns that you didn't even know you need or where to find and gain confidence with every fact found.
  • Squeeze the last drop of knowledge from search results and minimize time spent scanning.
Error Check

2. Error Check

  • Reduce the odds of costly cognitive errors left unchecked and avoid losing face.
  • Recognize and fix personal and group-level biases for higher accuracy.
  • Check proposals for errors and get them upgraded to make better decisions quicker and easier.
Critique Logic

3. Critique Logic

  • Identify and improve hitherto implicit logic in decision deliberation to increase commitment and engagement.
  • Assemble a sounding board that you can rely upon to complement your own insight all the time.
  • Guide your team to debate better and become better decision-makers like you.
Discover omissions

4. Ideate Alternatives

  • Increase the odds of finding the best solution instead of optimizing the obvious one on the table.
  • Find viable and goal-driven decision alternatives fast to fuel a better choice.
  • Involve the right stakeholders at the right time for the right feedback and ideas.
Error Check

5. Decide

  • Stop watering down decisions to reach consensus, but integrate the best unique insights to a shared, highly accurate decision.
  • Choose between alternatives by comparing the value they bring and the trade-off you'd make by not choosing the rest so you can explain your choice in clear language.
  • Increase decision yield with quick safety checks before you begin implementing so you won't have to come back on a decision anytime soon.
Critique Logic

6. Ethics Check

  • Let the organization do more good with every decision.
  • Recognize ethical dilemmas now and in the future and become a better influence.
  • Use four easy questions to upgrade the ethical power of your decisions right away.
