Creative Decisions Foundation Events


    Dr. Rokou will introduce multi criteria decision making focusing on the Analytic Hierarchy Process. You will learn how to combine tangibles and intangibles in a decision making model and be shown how to decide when to pairwise compare and when to rate the alternatives. You will practice modeling complex systems by evaluating Benefits, Opportunities, Costs, and Risks.

    We will then introduce Python programming language so you can learn how to use this tool to develop AHP models. The resulting models can be used by a single decision maker or a group of decision makers. With Python you can deploy questionnaires to collect data and use them to calculate results to support the decision.
