Plan Prediction Services

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex.  It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage, to move in the opposite direction.

This book (2017) outlines how the Planticipate app was conceived and built (read its Preface): 



The text imparts a deep understanding of our methods and how the Planticipate app will boost your chances of successfully implementing different policies.

------------------------

Listed below are some shorter publications which chart the evolution of our approach.  Remember that earlier versions of our app were sometimes quite different from today’s:
