The Decisions development team has been hard at work this summer, building new features to help customers have better meetings.
Every project requires meetings. In fact, managing a project is mostly a series of meetings.

Decisions announces several new features to make planning, organizing and running meetings even more effective.
In 2002, Daniel Kahneman received the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his work on cognitive bias.

Further, research from Harvard professor Cass Sunstein revealed how the management team decision processes can escalate individual decision biases and make the situation worse.
Array Architects, a leader in designing healthcare facilities, was looking for a solution to help manage meetings with its board of directors.
Backe, a leading construction firm in Norway, needed a solution to improve its meetings.
