Evidence-Based Decision-Making for Competitive Performance


Should I Invest Time and Money in This?


Whether you are the entrepreneur, the outside investor, the CEO or the Department Head, that is the real question you face every day. It is especially difficult when it is a complex decision about using a new technology, going into a new market or making any decision full of uncertainties.


The purpose of Stites & Associates is to help your Team make the right decisions for your organization…even those full of unknowns.


Good management decisions are predicated on seeking, recognizing and courageously acting on imperfect knowledge of the Truth - while scrupulously rejecting all bias, prejudice and self-interest when acting as leaders, agents or representatives of others. We call this Evidence-Based Decision-Making. We will teach you how to do this in a holistic way. We will teach you how to bring objectivity into the decision-making process so that your entire Team is actively engaged in seeking the best practical solutions for the organization.


Such objectivity is neither easy to obtain nor trivial to pursue. We are all flawed not only in our abilities to know, but even in our abilities to act on that knowledge. It is our natural inclination to become “married” to a technology, a viewpoint or a habit. Getting the Team to break out of the straitjacket of prejudice and bias is what great management does.


We propose a new way of thinking, acting and managing. It includes a wide variety of new paradigms and techniques including:

  • Creating an environment where Truth is sought 
  • Evaluating and learning from historical experiences and data
  • Experimenting with data and relationships to validate knowledge
  • Using validated knowledge to create new possibilities
  • Developing new models and actions freed from the prejudices of the past
  • Thriving in a world of perpetually not knowing and always learning
  • Loving challenge and change instead of running from it


SALLC and its team of experts can help you:

  • Experience the joy of learning your business anew
  • Explode innovation and business comprehension
  • Maximize the value of your business databases and experience
  • Turn your employees into technically savvy entrepreneurs 
  • Organize, plan and implement for future success
  • Turn your customers into excited partners in your future
  • Replace negativism and naivety with active, persistent realism
