About Precise Decisions
Established in 2009
Precise Decisions (previously known as Dilemma) was founded in 2009 by Gil Hoizman, a former McKinsey consultant, assisted by Meir Hadar, previously Chief Psychologist of the IDF.
More than 10 years ago, Gil had realized that the founder’s decisions and advanced career decisions were being addressed too “softly”, with insufficient rigor and precision. Despite the significant financial and personal implications of a single mistake, people sign founding agreements, battle workplace challenges, without careful analysis of their situations. In addition, they do not get sufficient help in creating more advanced alternatives.
“When CEO seeks advice in strategic dilemmas, no expert will attempt to offer a solution immediately after listening to the CEO. without conducting a careful analysis of the company’s situation first – talking to employees in various departments, analyzing the competitive landscape and getting to know the customers.”
The Approach: Mckinsey for People
Gil’s unique approach adapts the robust and precise management consultant principles to a range of critical decisions in which the decision maker is personally involved in, as well as other people.
“I was determined to establish the same level of rigor and investigative mindset in analyzing personal considerations and interpersonal situations.”
A rigorous analysis of softer issues
The process involves deep and comprehensive immersion in the person's unique professional situation. Once the unique aspects of the situation are clarified, problem solving begins, aiming to create carefully tailored solutions. As in the case of strategic business decision-making, multiple long short term and long term constraints and considerations are taken into account.
A single professional tackling all aspect of the decisions
Gil also realized quickly the huge advantage of being able to understand the business and strategic aspects and the personal aspects at the same time.
Traditionally business strategy consultants and HR or coaching experts are two different individuals or teams working separately. I believe these aspects are inseparable in critical decisions. Sometimes the only a deep understanding of the business issues – one can realize the personal bias of the co-founder. Sometimes through business adjustment of an agreement, we take care of a softer issue and vice versa.
There is a tremendous upside in looking at both aspects by one single expert.
Not just coaching, problem-solving together.
“In critical decisions, there is no room for errors, and therefore the decision-making expert needs` to join in and help to conduct the investigation, the analysis and the discovery of the best alternatives.”
Once the right decision or right move is made – the founder or executive will be able to adopt the successful practices in future situations
