Description

Building on the thinking of Project Risk Management, this book puts forward a practical, new approach to decision making in an uncertain business world. Many variables are accounted for and the authors are innovative in integrating previous decision-making approaches with a more fluid, and therefore realistic, model that can be applied across a wide range of contexts and decisions. Practical yet rigorous, it is ideal for students and professionals alike.
