What are the characteristics of successful managers? Surveys consistently show decision-making ability at or near the top of the lists. Perhaps no management activity is more important. Surprisingly, little training investment attends to developing this important skill. In Risk and Decision Analysis in Projects, Schuyler presents the approach and principal techniques of decision analysis to help the reader realize faster, more confident, and better decisions.
This book is a complete rewrite of the best-selling prior editions. Online supplements include models, additional readings, videos, and the Utility Elicitation Program. The methods are proven and accessible. And the techniques are applicable to all types of project decisions, estimates, feasibility analyses, and buy/sell valuations. With practice, decision analysis is easily integrated into a professional's daily problem-solving approach.
Making good decisions over the long term increases the probability of meeting your objectives. Those using decision analysis can sleep well at night knowing that they have made the best possible choices under the circumstances. Reading Decision Analysis in Projects is your first best choice.
