Welcome to Nicholls Consulting 

Good decision-making is the foundation of individual, organisational and business success and the only thing over which any of us have any control. And yet, peculiarly, decision-making is something in which very few of people are trained.

As the environment in which individuals, businesses and public sector organisations operate becomes more competitive, complex and uncertain, the need to make good decisions is more important than ever. But what is a good decision and how do you know that you’ve made one? And how can you improve the quality of the decisions made by yourself, your business or your organisation?

Drawing on insights from the field of Strategic Decision-Making (pioneered at Stanford and Harvard Universities) as well as leading international research, Nicholls Consulting Services provides busy professionals and others with a practical, working knowledge of how to begin making better decisions in a short space of time; knowledge that can be used to immediately improve individual performance and dramatically improve organisational results.
