This course explores both objective and subjective decision making models. Emphasis is placed on decision making for organizational effectiveness. The rational approach will be taught via maximization of expected outcomes and decision tree analysis. The course will also explore managers’ preferred decision making styles. The irrational side of decision-making will be covered through demonstrations and discussion of decision bias and judgment heuristics. Decision making is a complex and challenging process. The need for an effective and efficient methodology that is simple, systematic, and logical is more important today than ever. This course is an answer to that problem by using examples from our text and up-to-date articles on decision making from experts in the field.
