Track: Decision Analysis

Decide Better: How an Entrepreneur & Educator Embraced Decision Science

How do you decide whom to hire, when a phase-gate has been achieved, or which project to resource next? Chances are, you rely on intuition… which could otherwise be known as habits, biases, and, group-think. What if you could elevate your decision-making… to decide using information? To decide better.

This presentation will engage the audience with real examples of how leading companies are using structured Decision Science techniques, and how individuals, teams, and entire organizations can be empowered to use these techniques. Further, demonstrations of how Behavioral Science can be incorporated to allow for qualitative aspects like post-mortems (and pre-mortems!).

Attendees will leave informed on these innovative uses of analytics to support decision-making, and equipped with tools and examples to see the world a little differently.
