Strategic Investment Decisions

DECISION-MAKING UNDER UNCERTAINTY

WE BRING EXPERTISE SO YOU ALWAYS MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

Successful decision-making requires a structured approach; relying on intuition becomes dangerous under complexity. Explore a different approach to investment decisions – we will make sure you don’t leave value on the table.

What we Do

VALUE FOCUS AREAS

BUSINESS STRATEGY

Choosing a strategy is critical. We have the expertise and framework that brings trust and quality to your choice. We make sure you understand the impact of the unknowns before making a decision.

PORTFOLIO DECISIONS

With a portfolio of opportunities, it can become difficult to pick the right ones. We assist with optimizing portfolios under uncertainty and help to select the best one based on your constraints.

PROJECTS

Many projects fail due to improper framing, poor understanding of uncertainties, and leaving “value on the table”. Our framework provides a proven methodology for successful investments.

NON-PROJECT INVESTMENTS

Our framework and methodologies are well adapted for supporting operational or strategic business investments. This can be R&D investments, commercial, M&A, growth investments, etc.

STRUCTURED DECISION PRACTICES

For most businesses making decisions is a frequent event. The need for a structured approach with clear definitions of roles, behaviors, and how decisions are made is how we bring value to you.

ORGANIZATIONAL CAPABILITIES

Groups or individuals must have the proper capabilities to make good decisions. ThinQ offers training and workshops to make sure you successfully frame, analyze, and make the right choices.
