    Reed Welcomes Complex Decision Challenges


    Successful decision outcomes rely on several performance factors that Reed helps you manage at every step by:
    • Clearly framing the decision situation
    • Performing insightful quantitative analysis
    • Providing sensible options and recommending courses of action
    • Reducing risk while maximizing opportunity
    • Improving the quality of recurring decisions

    Our Business Approach


    We offer a simple yet carefully planned approach with emphasis on execution. Reed works with you to activate these basic parameters of both business and program analytics: 


    • Partner with management to define and prioritize the issues to ensure an integrated approach to communication and knowledge sharing.
    • Focus on program and business impact and implementation through established analytical tools that illustrate operational capacities and present a realistic picture of the dynamics of your business.
    • Establish a disciplined, consistent approach, utilizing resources to capture business, financial, and risk management alternatives.
      Our Business and Program Analytics Go Beyond the Issues
      Reed Integration’s expertise in business and program analytics provides the framework to prioritize issues, and get to the extreme focus on program and business impacts and implementation.

      Reed’s Tradeoff Studies and Analytic Hierarchy Process
      Project management involves making difficult decisions based on multiple metrics, both qualitative and quantitative. Reed’s Analytics Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Trade Study Process (or trade-off study) are methodologies that can help bridge from an intuition-based decision process to a fact-based decision process.

      Trusted Due Diligence/Business Case Development
      As your trusted partner, Reed performs on a strict non-disclosure basis to fulfill complete due diligence for your critical decision making needs. Supported by our in-depth OCI-Free process and internal quality management guidelines, we develop fact based scenarios and analyses of business cases that puts our clients’ best interest first.

      Root Cause Analysis
      Root cause analysis (RCA) is a systematic process for identifying “root causes” of problems or events and an approach for responding to them. RCA is based on the basic idea that effective management requires more than merely “putting out fires” for problems that develop, but finding a way to prevent them.  Reed's approach is to provide a logical approach to problem-solving, using data that already exists in the agency.

This framework involves characterizing uncertain events, formulating creative alternatives, and incorporating decision-makers preferences and values. Students are introduced to a set of coherent tools used for framing problems and performing logical analysis, including decision modeling in Excel. Topics include decision trees, sensitivity analysis, influence diagrams, value of information, risk preferences and Monte Carlo simulation.
