Comes with a caution …

I was sitting quietly in the corner at the party – enjoying watching people catch up with each other.

He quietly came over and sat down next to me.

“G’day mate, what you been up to?” said the friend of long-standing who I had not seen for many years.

So I gave him the short version of transferring my thinking into software – such as the OughtWe Decision Maker.

He paused, reflected, smiled ruefully and said two things.

– “how many consulting gigs have you done where the situation is appreciated in the first briefing?“

– “given what you know about how the world works, how the hell do you think this app – which has embedded elements of transparency, rigour, and accountability – is going to sell?”

Hmmm … good point.

So be warned

We all have difficult decisions in life.

I still think it’s worth basing them on facts, assessing the available information, and reviewing options with rigour.

Therefore I offer you the OughtWe Decision Maker for your consideration.

It might be one of your best “one dollar buys”.
