Creative Decisions Foundation Events


The third TL Saaty Decision-Making for Leaders Hackathon will be held March 22-24, 2024. It honors Thomas L. Saaty’s legacy (1926-2017) who served as Distinguished University Professor at the Katz Graduate Business School for more than 40 years. He created the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Analytic Network Process (ANP), best known for complex decision-making.

T.L.Saaty Decision Making Hackathon is a joint effort of University of Pittsburgh and Creative Decisions Foundation.

The Hackathon brings together academia, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations. Working with this year’s business partner (to be announced) you will analyze the issues presented by the partner's employees and propose solutions. A panel of judges with expertise in AHP/ANP and the decision topics presented will select the winning solution.
