Do you want to reduce uncertainty in your decision making?
Would you like to be mathematically certain you've made the right choice?
Now you can with Bridging Decisions Into Solutionsby Jonathan
Keyes, Dr. Richard St. Clair, and Dr. Robert D. Gray.
Into Solutions brings to business and academic settings a new, comprehensive
approach to decision making and problem solving through the incorporation
of a continuum of variables, quantitative methods, and qualitative cognition
within a new conceptual framework.
Bridging Decisions Into Solutionsdemonstrates how all decisions
and actions are part of a decision process. It presents a unique decision-making
paradigm that can be applied to decisions in management, business, academics
or education, research, and personal life. The book describes and applies
an effective decision process that considers inputs and outputs, facilitates
analytical methods, and considers relevant variable relationships. You
will be introduced to the paradigm of the bridging process that considers
the spectrum of relevant variables necessary for optimum decisions. It
differentiates variables as either facilitators (inputs into the decision
process) or as reciprocal impact factors (affective variables that impact
To help you see how to apply the principles in the book, an ongoing
and evolving case study illustrates the bridging continuum. The book contains
research methods and some commonly used statistical tools to use to improve
the decision process. Even if you think you're no good at math, you will
be able to use the statistical tools described in this book.
Bridging Decisions Into Solutions does not limit you to one model
or one approach to decision making. The methods in the book can be applied
to any field or academic discipline, and to any problem needing resolution.
A key feature of the book is the demonstration of how decisions can become
effective applications of knowledge that solve problems effectively. To
assist you further, the book presents different research models that can
be followed to accommodate the research objectives of different groups:
general research, business and management research; and student research.
Bridging Decisions Into Solutions is available in a paperback
edition of approximately 256 pages, with numerous illustrations, index,
and helpful appendices.
