2022 Winners

In 2022, there were 15 teams, composed of 2 to 3 students, in the three-day event.

The first day was AHP/ANP methods training, followed by hands-on practice with the decision-making software. In the afternoon, employees of Microsoft gave some perspectives about issues the company was facing. On the second day, the teams brainstormed the Microsoft issues they had heard about to formulate a decision model. They determined the factors, proposed solutions, and created an AHP/ANP decision model to find the best option. The final step was to prepare presentations for the judging the next day.

On the last day, panels of decision-making experts from around the world joined on Zoom with judges in the room to pick the winners. An interesting thing about the winners in 2022 is that they were two individuals who did not know each other before they were assigned to be on the same team and did not know anything about the AHP/ANP decision-making process.
