Whys, Context for Decision Making

Whys is a decision support system that presents nuanced information in an intuitive and structured way.

Seeking to get away from binary data polls in which decisions are simplified to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer, Whys encourages reflection in public debate, representing the notions behind different opinions. Rather than giving all uncontextualised opinions equal footing, Whys shows the connectivities between often differing views, bringing together fractured information and helping to make sense of it. It enables decision-makers to see the big picture in seconds and to drill down into the details. This way, better processes for collaboration are made possible in politics, management and science.
