Decision Explorer

Description:

Decision Explorer® is a modelling tool for managing the qualitative information that surrounds complex or uncertain situations. It allows you to capture in detail thoughts and ideas, to explore them, and gain new understanding and insight. It can be used as a personal tool or as the focus for group discussion, the views of all involved parties can be recorded.

It works with ideas so expertise is lost, and contradictory and opposing views are captured, explored and worked through. When dealing with complex situations it’s very easy to overlook important details, but with Decision Explorer® all issues remain visible and do not have to be repeated. When a solution is arrived at, the decision making processes behind it will be clear and traceable, and all involved should be able to identify a contribution.

In Decision Explorer® the links between ideas add structure to the model, revealing inter-relationships and the cause and effect of different elements. Decision Explorer® helps you to analyse your model, it’s not just a presentation tool, so you can work effectively with hundreds of concepts. Decision Explorer® maps are not static pages, but dynamic views of a much larger model. There is no page size limit and you can keep working with and adding to a model over time. Textual reports add further depth to the information available.
