Programme Introduction:

We make decisions every day. Some decisions are routine, but some have a profound impact on our life and the essence of business as well. Gaining competency in such a vital subject is highly desirable for personal and professional well-being.
The MDP is needed in decision analysis to help managers develop the skills and knowledge to analyse and make decisions in complex, dynamic environments. Decision analysis involves identifying and evaluating options, assessing risks and uncertainties, and choosing the best course of action based on the available information. This can be challenging, especially when many competing considerations and multiple stakeholders are involved.
An MDP in decision analysis can help managers develop the analytical skills and strategic thinking they need to navigate these complex situations effectively. It can provide them with tools and frameworks for analysing options, assessing risks and uncertainties, and making informed decisions that align with the organisation's goals and objectives.

This MDP includes activities and materials, such as case studies, lectures, simulations, and interactive sessions. These activities may focus on such issues as decision-making frameworks, risk analysis, cost-benefit analysis, 2x2 matrix, and strategic planning.
