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 out of your organization. Decisions by Design: I warmly recommend it!Prof. dr. Emile Aarts - Tilburg University
Judging too quickly, reacting emotionally, sticking to new insights – I’ve fallen into all these pitfalls. The low quality of the decisions was accordingly. After reading Decisions by Design, I immediately came into action to do things differently. Therein lies the strength 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
