Decision Making to Success

Injecting objectivity, pace and energy into your organisation.

I want to improve my Decision Making

Your organisation is only as good as the decisions you make. A manager will make about 3 billion decisions each year. Each of those decisions could be made more efficiently.

I want to improve my Pace of Delivery

Ineffectual planning effects operational delivery outcomes. This has a knock-on effect on the organisation, resulting in a deficit in accountability and quality control.

I would like to improve both.

Neither are relevant to me.

"Having Quirk Solutions show us their way of doing things was not only a great opportunity to develop our communication planning capability, but also helped us reflect on how to improve our planning processes and how to think of our challenges and objectives from a fresh perspective."

Sandrine Huijgen, Global Communication Manager, Heineken

"Quirk Solutions sent Chris Paton to the Middle East to support Digital Soula Systems in the development of a classified system. Quirk Solutions provided us with a rapid response, flexible intellectual support and written and verbal solutions that were both entirely practical and immediately usable."

Tarek Fouad, CEO, Digital Soula Systems

"We have been using Quirk Solutions for about a year or so now. They’ve really helped us in pressure testing our plans for the various transformation projects we have running right across the business. As a result I have much higher confidence in our plans and knowing that our projects will deliver for us and for the business."
