The thesis Decision Making: An Introduction designs a practical approach to decision making in complex situations under uncertainty. Decision makers and teams are provided with a foundational mindset that uses established methodological approaches and reframes them through combination and flexible application.
The project consists of three parts. The book provides the reader with an introduction to the theory of the subject. Starting from the front, the contents are described in detail and summarize the wide-ranging areas of decision theory and its research findings. Read from the back, the book serves as a compact reference guide to individual topics. The card set assists teams working together in a decision-making workshop. They serve as a source of inspiration and as brief action guides that look at individual aspects of the decision-making process in isolation. The methods deal with different aspects and needs and help to make decision making efficient and gain a broader view of the problem. The website summarizes theory and practical approaches. It provides quick starters as templates for workshops and brings methods and theory closer to the viewer. The multimedia concept enables different approaches to the topic and creates a bridge between theory and application.
