Cognitive Consultants International (CCI-HQ)
CCI-HQ has worked with a variety of governmental and commercial entities to increase efficiency and effectiveness (see some of our events). Because of CCI-HQ's unique perspective, it is able to provide insights and solutions that make good business cases because they show how to achieve 'more for less.'
Cognitive Consultants International (CCI-HQ) specializes in taking a cognitive neuro-scientific approach to applied real-world consultancy and research. In a nutshell, that means that we apply our knowledge and understanding of the human brain and cognitive system to resolve practical problems in the real world.
CCI-HQ provides consultancy, scientific research, and training that focuses on enhancing human performance. The work is led by Dr Itiel Dror and associate consultants, who examine areas such as continuous professional development, improving decision making, and use of technology through scientific understanding of human cognition.
See, for example, papers published in Science (e.g., 'Explore blind testing to prevent errors - get practical about fighting cognitive bias'), in The Economist (e.g., 'Ignorance is bliss'), and in Nature (e.g., 'Science in court: Courage of conviction' and 'The Fine Print') that focus on Dr Dror's work on decision making and cognitive bias. See also a brief to the Houses of Parliament.
Dr. Itiel Dror has received the ABP (Association for Business Psychology) Annual Chairman's Award, for the best achievements and excellence in Business Psychology. Dr. Dror is also the Chair of the Forensic Human Factors Committee of the US Department of Justice (DoJ) & National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), as well as a member of the AAAS (The American Association for the Advancement of Science) Advisory Committee on Forensic Science Assessment (a project in which the AAAS will conduct an analysis of the underlying scientific bases for the forensic tools and methods currently used in the criminal justice system).
