Since 1984, Decision Associates has helped dozens of companies evolve to “best in class” performance. Many of them start with strategic or marketing planning. Then they turn to organizational development to create a structure to accommodate growth, develop employees and recruit executive talent.

Along the way, our clients often ask us to provide solutions for improving their sales function, implementing operations improvements or addressing unexpected growth. In time, Decision Associates may be called upon to develop a succession plan for the management team or even to prepare the organization for a sale or merger. This integration of services is, in fact, the primary benefit many of our clients cite when working with Decision Associates.

The bottom line in every instance is a shared focus on becoming a “best in class” company and reaping the benefits of being in The Top 20 Percent. Working together with our clients, we plan and work to get to this level – in the process, accumulating and leveraging powerful advantages to achieve sustained success.

"Our company is great at hiring for most positions, but when we needed help with an executive position, we turned to Decision Associates. We felt that we didn't have to 'go it alone' to find the right person. The screening tools that were used helped to match the candidate to the personality and culture of Betts Industries. They identified the traits and performance indicators with the candidates, and we began a vetting process that was intensive and successful. The whole process was quicker than we thought it would be and was narrowed to a handful of candidates who were all qualified. It was an easy process to work with Decision Associates, the extra work up front that they did benefited us at the end. Our hire is going great and exceeding our expectations. We would recommend Aaron Phillips and Elizabeth Cipolla to assist in any executive position needed and will turn to them again."
