GRL’s portfolio of Award-Winning Decision Support Technologies were all designed to help organizations and individuals make BETTER FASTER decisions. They include:
1. HARMONY Decision-Maker (HDM) App
The HDM App was designed to help managers or individuals make BETTER FASTER decisions in business or life. The HDM App guides users through the 5-step ProConCloud process, with each step designed to help prevent one of 5 common decision mistakes. Users can share their decision analysis and implementation status privately with managers, stakeholders, teachers or coaches or publicly via the HDM community library to allow users to not just learn from their own experience but to also learn from each other’s successes and failures.
Our Harmony Decision Maker App was the winner of a Global Entrepreneur Network’s 2017 Innovation Award.
