Make Better Decisions

Data promised to make decisions easier but data is no guarantee of a good decision. The complexity and scale of modern data defies our evolved intuitions. This has the effect of putting intuition and data in conflict with one another when, instead, people need to develop better intuition for working with data. Through our book, learning and development programs, and decision strategy consulting, we help your organization build the skills you need to succeed in the age of data, algorithms, and AI.

How to stop making bad decisions and start making better decisions.

Solve Better Problems

Digital transformation makes more problems complex but organizations continue to try to solve these complex problems with traditional problem-solving practices. Through our complex problem-solving workshops, learning and development programs, and complexity strategy consulting, we help you develop the skills to step through complex problems by exploring data and asking better questions.

How to use the digital age to solve better problems.

Design Better Intelligence

Humans are fantastic and flawed. Our weaknesses can be compensated by machines’ strengths. Through our AI strategy consulting and co-creation design sprints, we help you make use of human-machine complementarity by designing better intelligence for both humans and machines.

How to design strong cultures in the digital age.

Helen and Dave have a unique ability to describe what it means to be human in the age of AI. They prompt an audience to think beyond the technology and to consider how technology can be both humanizing and dehumanizing. They are masters in translating complex issues into compelling, relatable stories, and theirs was the first presentation about AI that reassured me that, yes, we can do this, a beautiful future is possible with AI.

“Helen and Dave were great workshop facilitators and our diverse group—from AI novices to experts—was able to learn valuable AI insights and create new ideas for ethical AI in education.”

Taylor Bohn, Partnerships, National Head Start Association

“Helen and Dave delivered a brilliant session for our 500-person advertising team at The New York Times. For businesses not inherently rooted in technology, there is perhaps no phenomena as alluring in its potential, inevitable in its advance and utterly terrifying by virtue of its technical and moral complexity as artificial intelligence. Dave and Helen delivered a uniquely engaging session that addressed this exact complexity and everyone came away from the workshop more optimistic about the role AI will play in their business moving forward.“

Zazie Pence, Talent and Culture, The New York Times

“Helen and Dave are two of the most fascinating human beings I’ve crossed paths with in this industry and are well worth following.”

“I have been involved in executive development and digital transformation for a number of years and can safely say that Helen and Dave's ability to make AI simple and accessible is outstanding. They break down technical barriers so executives can understand new strategic opportunities and the extent to which machines will change people and the way we work.”
