A 20-Day Decision is ... Collaborative | Visual | Evidential | Brisk | Rigorous

At the intersection of Deep Aspiration, Independent Thinking, and Improved Results

About Us About You
Assist Mission-driven Organizations with Decision Support, Problem Solving, and Performance Improvement Expertise

What We Do

Many commercial enterprises, small businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and state and local agencies distinguish themselves by high ideals, but also anticipate or experience difficulty reaching their aspirations due to competing priorities or imposing complexities and risks. By engaging with 20-Day Decisions, clients receive independent advice on how to improve their operations. Over twenty working days, we pinpoint and explain conditions that tend to prevent expected outcomes from occurring, and we offer the decision support, problem-solving, and performance improvement expertise needed to keep mission and results on-track.
