Plan Prediction Services

Our publications

This book (2017) details how our app was conceived and built:

 

download its Preface

Its first three chapters outline what seems to be important whenever people compare alternative plans;.  The next three chapters  crystallize such factors into twelve key plan-evaluation criteria, and the seventh chapter uses them to build our Planticipate app.  The last two chapters then respectively describe how real-world individuals have responded to our approach, and what the latter has so far revealed about people’s planning priorities

If you read this book you will gain a deep understanding of our methods and how Plan Prediction Services can greatly boost your chances of successfully implementing different policies.
