Our Vision

We aim to spark actionable insights and create technology solutions that guide decision makers to take clear actions, so they can succeed in their evolving and complex operational environments.

Why Decisions Oriented?

When we founded Decisions Oriented in 2016, two things were happening in the contracting world.

First, clients were frustrated that the solutions they were being provided did not deliver the knowledge (information at the right time, in the right context) they needed to answer their operational questions and challenges. Instead of solutions that solved their problems, they had technologies that managed their operational challenges.

Second, technology advancements were taking off and the workforce talent wasn’t keeping up. They lacked the right skills for the right job at the right time. They didn’t have the expertise the client needed to bring solutions to bear or solve problems.

We established Decisions Oriented to do things differently.

Collaboratively, we work with clients to clear away distractions and discover the unknown-unknowns. We deliver solutions that solve the complex, challenging problems – not just manage them through long, drawn-out contractual engagements. We immerse ourselves within each customer’s environment to bring IT solutions to bear that innovate and strengthen the use of informed, data-driven decision-making and apply comprehensive implementation approaches to ease transformation and change.

We also hire and train skilled technical professionals who have a passion for learning, serving others, and getting things right. We invest in our people, creating a more skilled and better-prepared workforce to serve our client’s technical needs.
