ThinkerAnalytix is a non-profit organization that partners with Harvard University’s Department of Philosophy. We offer training workshops in ethical reasoning skills to help employees make better decisions and communicate more effectively.
Make better decisions.
As a niche consulting firm in ethical reasoning, we bring our expertise to organizational decision making and problem solving. Our techniques rely on the principles of disciplined and constructive reasoning in the decision making process.
How does it work?
We draw on our expertise in ethical reasoning and decision mapping to help organizations and individuals make better decisions by stress-testing the logical and ethical coherence of the thinking that goes into their decisions. To ensure that organizational challenges are addressed from multiple perspectives, we facilitate and promote collective team intelligence.
Our services are relevant for leaders charged with making high-stakes decisions and setting the course for their organizations.
Why does it work?
We improve ethical reasoning and decision making skills by teaching you to visually map the relevant evidence for making an ethical decision.
Here are some key benefits of decision mapping that lead to improved decision-making:
- Mapping exposes implicit (unconscious) assumptions and biases that frequently turn out to be the heart of a more critical decision. Often, these assumptions only live in the participants’ minds (possibly subconsciously). Drawing them out aids teams in putting their recommendations to the test, unveiling surprising new insights.
- Mapping aids in the development of collective intelligence. Where there is a disagreement, the controversy is shifted from the personal relationship level to the point highlighted on the map. This promotes a more collaborative atmosphere as well as more constructive debates, resulting in shared understanding, shared ownership, and shared commitment to the group decision developed.
- Mapping substantially decreases cognitive burden and creates a record of the decision process. You can read more about the impact of decision mapping on cognitive biases here.

We provide facilitation services to help teams make progress on ethical decisions by laying out visually the thinking involved in a decision. The mapping techniques we use during facilitation rely on a mix of dialogue mapping, argument mapping, and decision mapping – jointly referred to as deliberative mapping tools. These mapping techniques allow for “on the fly” visual representations of complex reasoning.
