Decision science: What is it and how can it make your job easier?
Tuesday - 4/19/2011, 9:37pm EDT
On today's show, Professor Forman will explain what decision science is.
You may be surprised to learn that there is an entire discipline titled "decision science." In this interview, Professor Forman describes decision science from the early Greeks to current authors like Josh Lehrer. During the discussion, you will learn about the mathematics that underpin many of the new approaches to decision making.
Decision science has a direct applicability to the world of IT. Federal technology professionals are constantly being told to do more with less. Well, what do you cut? How about cloud computing? One really shouldn't move everything to the cloud, so which applications do you move and which ones do you retain? If you use some of the principles of decision science, then you can make better decisions.
