Strategic Decision Making
Examine tools for modeling decisions involving risk and uncertainty to analyze various problems and make better decisions.
Uncertainty and complexity make many decisions difficult, especially those involving R&D projects, new products and new ventures. This class introduces decision and risk analysis – the systematic evaluation of decision problems involving uncertainty. Decision and risk analysis breaks decision problems down into more manageable parts and explicitly considers the possible alternatives, available information, and the relevant preferences of the decision makers. The class will discuss methods for structuring and modeling decision problems and apply these methods to a variety of problems that involve risk and uncertainty.
Develop the skills and strategies to make high-level decisions and to execute with confidence company-wide.
