WTRI (Workplace Technologies Research Inc) fuses cutting edge cognitive science research with leading business and management practices to help you achieve specific quantifiable outcomes through

  • situation assessment

  • strategic rehearsal

  • dynamic modeling

  • cognitive assessment tools

Rapidly changing business environments create new demands that require organizations to discard older approaches to doing business. In this kind of dynamic environment, every organization exhibits basic cognitive deficits that can lead to poor group-level decision making and ultimately poor organization-wide performance.  WTRI has developed solutions that help teams and individuals confront the sources of failure and re-engineer their thinking.
