Measure what Matters, Make better Decisions

Consulting has been the main service of Hubbard Decision Research for 20 years.  We offer quick consulting guidance all the way up to comprehensive, quantitative risk/return analysis of major investment and policy decisions and even re-engineering your entire process of measurements, project prioritization, risk management and more.  HDR’s experience covers a variety of industries and types of problems.  See a few Testimonials and Case Studies for more information about challenging problems solved by HDR.

Whether your uncertain investment decisions are in a small company assessing a critical market opportunity, a Fortune 100 company implementing an enterprise-wide process to prioritize an entire portfolio of projects, or a government agency implementing performance metrics, Hubbard Decision Research (HDR) can help quantify it. Using the principles of Applied Information Economics, we can measure what matters even when it seems intangible. No matter how uncertain and complex a decision may be, our Applied Information Economics consulting can quantify the risks and returns to find the right strategy.

We begin our quantitative risk assessment by building a decision model of your investment, based on the principles of Applied Information Economics. This model produces a cutting edge quantitative analysis of your decision, and provides you with the critical metrics that matter most in your investment decision and the economic value of knowing these metrics.

Quantitative Risk Assessment through
Applied Information Economics

Your biggest decisions deserve a thorough risk and return analysis before committing to significant resources. Even if you are not a current user of Applied Information Economics, HDR will come to your firm, conduct our quantitative risk assessment of your proposed investment, and deliver our assessment of the economic viability of the investment along with detailed recommendations. We can then identify and design specific measurement methods that, themselves, have a measurable business value. HDR will set up a comprehensive risk assessment and risk management solution that has measurably effective methods at its core. Not just a “risk score,” or “risk map,” the quantitative approach of AIE will measure the risks statistically.

Our Goal

Our ultimate goal is to make your firm independently capable of conducting AIE analysis on your entire portfolio of big decisions whether those decisions are about information technology, product development, major policies, or evaluating risks. A full economic consulting session involves training your analysts, analyzing your portfolio, redesigning the approval process, and conducting a pilot project so that your staff has hands-on experience with the tools and methods.
