Welcome to Dectech's podcast, Predicting People! Here at Dectech we help businesses understand and manage consumer decision making. After two decades of forecasting behaviour changes, we wanted to share our knowledge of what affects our choices, our behaviours, and our experiences of products and services, what works in getting to grips with behavioural measures and predictions, not just in theory, but how these insights are applied in client-side challenges. Predicting People is a podcast, all about the applications of behavioural science in the commercial world. In each episode, we invite experts to talk about how behavioural science has been affecting their business, and how they see it being used in the future.
