Marjolijn and Edwin have extensive experience in guiding group discussions and know how to translate this into useful tips, tools and techniques. They also offer insights that not only help you understand the process, but also apply them. They combine a rigorous approach to process design for decision making with a good sense of people.Robert Verheule - Rijkswaterstaat
The Decisions by Design method has an enormous added value: not only do you arrive at a group decision in a simple and structured manner, the decision itself is actually good and all parties are behind it. With Decisions by Design, you get the best out of your employees and therefore your organization. Decisions by Design: I highly recommend it!Prof. dr. Emile Aarts - Tilburg University
Judging too quickly, reacting emotionally, lingering on new insights - I fell into all these traps. The quality of the decisions I made was just as bad. After reading Decisions by Design, I immediately started to do things differently. That's the power of this book: it encourages you to immediately put the steps and principles into practice. I can tell you: it works!Hans van der Loo - Betterday
