"Pragmatism is that method of reflexion [sic] which is guided by constantly holding in view its purpose and the purpose of the ideas it analyzes...a method of reflexion [sic] having for its purpose to render ideas clear."

Charles Sanders Peirce 1902


Out of Nowhere provides top-down risk management services for IT and Software Engineering organizations. We can provide you a complete risk analysis and mitigation strategy in a straight forward, unbiased, and pragmatic way so you can make informed decisions and get the most out of your business.

We provide clients with "the outside view" to produce realistic depictions of risks. This bypasses much of the cognitive and political favoritism, such as optimism bias and strategic misrepresentation, and gets to the heart of the matter. By conducting "top-down" technical and business risk analysis, we are able to identify risks that fall between the typical "silo risk analysis" techniques.
