About the Authors
  • Behavioural studies have shown that while humans may be the best decision makers on the planet, we are not quite as good as we think we are. We are regularly subject to biases, inconsistencies and irrationalities in our decision making. Decision Behaviour, Analysis and Support explores perspectives from many different disciplines to show how we can help decision makers to deliberate and make better decisions. It considers both the use of computers and databases to support decisions as well as human aids to building analyses and some fast and frugal tricks to aid more consistent decision making. In its exploration of decision support it draws together results and observations from decision theory, behavioural and psychological studies, artificial intelligence and information systems, philosophy, operational research and organisational studies. This provides a valuable resource for managers with decision-making responsibilities and students from a range of disciplines, including management, engineering and information systems.

    • Explains effective decision-making for practitioners and students from a range of disciplines, including management, engineering and information systems
    • Covers the use of computer technology in decision-making
    • Features real-world examples and scenarios to give practical insight

    Reviews & endorsements

    “The authors provide arguments for the need to take a multidisciplinary approach to decision making. Not only have they done so convincingly, they have shown how to do this and have shown the value of doing so. Decision Behaviour, Analysis and Support provides a valuable resource for all involved in the decision making process. Certainly, managers with decision making responsibilities at any level of an organization would benefit from this comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of decision science.”
    – Kathryn A. Szabat, LaSalle University, International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences
