Founded in 1992 with the mission to develop a new and improved concept of assessing how well organizations are really performing and identifying current and future risks and opportunities that could impact performance. The idea was to use software for speed fueled by a database for analytics. The concept for enterprise assessment and performance measurement software powered offerings to be predictive and prescriptive about risks/opportunities to enable performance optimization were developed from the initial research into the performance of 800+ commercial, not-for-profit and technology investments in the public and private sectors. This led to the development of the first software powered solution and supporting database that required over two years of research with MIT, Stanford and Vanderbilt universities. Based on continued research, thirty plus products have been developed and used globally with the Fortune 1000 identifying value opportunities and risk inherent to organizations, projects and products, not to mention several universities incorporating the concepts and solutions into their curriculum.
