An Overview of Structured Decision Making: a two-day course for managers - Responding to feedback from the full-week course, Introduction to Structured Decision Making, NCTC has developed a shorter course to target the skills and concepts most useful for managers. The technical and quantitative aspects of the material are not included in this overview course so as to concentrate on the most applicable processes that a typical manager needs to know/be able to do. The 2-day course takes managers through the PrOACT process, a helpful roadmap for decomposing problems and applying systematic thinking to make your decision. Other concepts covered include evaluating trade-offs, uncertainty, risk and managing small to large decision problems. November 2009
