Our Passion and Purpose

I have always been fascinated with the tension between what the numbers say and what humans feel. The numbers have less variability yet it’s incomplete to say that we should only look to numbers for answers. In high-stakes decisions, this duality matters. Systems and structure are needed but love and care for people matters just as much.

This is why I do this work; because in the end, the purpose of the systems and structure is to facilitate our love and care for people. And in high-stakes situations, getting it right is all the more important.

Michael Rainey, President

I am a former active duty service officer in the United States Army and currently serve as a strategic level scientific, technical, and decision science consultant with a desire to continue a lifetime of service to high stakes leaders that make decisions daily with human lives in the balance.

My last duty position in the Army was to serve as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems Engineering at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY. While on staff, my faculty research initiatives extended into systems engineering design and project management, decision science, and the design and development of analytics to support leaders in making the highest quality decision possible when faced with uncertain and combative environments.
