Decision making is a process where multiple factors interact to shape the final outcome. Those factors can be technical, informational, emotional/psychological, cultural… Nevertheless, the limited rationality of economic operators makes the decision exercise more and more difficult in a more and more complex world. Safety management requires short, mid and long term decisions that may highly influence the ability of the organization to cope with its risks.
At the end of the course, students are expected to have basic knowledge about:

  • Main descriptive and prescriptive concepts related to decision making in risk management
  • A vision of the key decision making moments of risk management frameworks
  • A global vision of the tools available to improve the way managers are dealing with decision making.
The course is organized in the framework of the FP7 project iNTeg-Risk. This gives a special value to our training program by introducing specific topics of new methods and tools developed, in order to deal with emerging, new technologies-related risks.
The registration is free of charge, anyone interested in the topic are welcome on the course. Please register before April 21, 2013. For more details of the course, please visit the online announcement or the detailed course profile.
