Our History

William A. Ross, Jennifer K. Phillips, and Dr. Karol G. Ross partnered in 2007 and founded CPG to conduct research and develop products to support human cognitive performance.

The three partners each contributed to the cognitive science movement and its significant breakthroughs over the past 25 years. Upon forming CPG, they made their mark in the military training community by conducting cutting-edge research and product development in cultural-cognitive competency modeling and assessment, decision-centered training and assessment for small units, and the design of simulation-based decision training.

Since its inception, CPG has welcomed several talented researchers and practitioners who can apply scientific advancements to real-world problems. Contributions include: scientific papers, research methodologies, practical applications, workshops, and critiques of decision support and training systems in several domains and industries.

Today, our agile, interdisciplinary team offers capabilities in designing and developing client-centered solutions that improve decision making and problem solving at individual, team, and organizational levels. We specialize in blending proven qualitative and quantitative research methods to characterize cognitive challenges and produce solutions for improving how people think and learn.
