About Us

Decision Lens is on a mission: To revolutionize the decision-making required for great achievement.


Decision making is in our DNA

In 2005, Decision Lens founders, John and Dan Saaty, launched their father, Dr. Thomas Saaty’s world-renowned decision framework as powerful software that would revolutionize the way the public sector prioritizes, plans, and funds.

Decision Lens is integrated planning software which modernizes how government prioritizes, plans, and funds. Leveraging our unique expertise in decision science, agencies achieve a sustained operational advantage through superior long-term planning, continuous medium-term prioritization, and short-term funding execution. We help the public sector deliver today while planning for tomorrow.


We are not just another tech company

We’re not just another tech company with a ping pong table (we prefer foosball, anyway). We hire, train, and invest in people who believe in our mission, work collaboratively, ensure customer success, and make our time working together meaningful.

Decision Lens Values

By living our core values of passion, honesty, competence, and teamwork, we have been recognized as a Great Place to Work*.



We are passionate about building revolutionary technology. Passion conveys belief, belief conveys confidence, and confidence instills within our customers the knowledge that they can rely on us.



We build trust through direct honesty. We value straight talk, openness, self-awareness, and genuine communication and contributions towards the greater good of the company and everyone with whom we connect.



Competence is a critical attribute of every Decision Lens employee. Building competence can take time, but there is no question that is too small to be answered, and no skill that will help our customers achieve success that we will not invest in.



The strength of our team does not only lie in our combined experience and expertise but our ability to trust each other and collaborate. We work together, across boundaries, to meet the needs of our customers and help Decision Lens win.
