Decision Analysis For The Professional
By Peter McNamee and John Celona
To be successful in these turbulent times, management must understand how to cope with risk and uncertainty. This book captures the authors' decades of experience in applying decision analysis to risky, complex real-world decisions, often with hundreds of millions or billions of dollars at stake.
Since the book was first published in 1988, there has been a dramatic evolution in the practice of decision analysis. The number of companies using decision analysis has grown rapidly. Experience with these companies has shown that practical as well as analytical skills are needed for successful implementation of a decision analysis program.
The book will be of interest to professional practitioners as well as executives and managers who must make difficult choices in an uncertain world.
