The objective of this FDP are to:

  • Understand the information processing and cognitive models in decision making.
  • Appraise the importance of designing a proper information system and decision support system.
  • Apply methods to visualize the data and utilize methods for taking decisions based on multiple criteria.
  • Analyze the heuristics decision models and utilize simulation for decision making.
  • Synthesize a variety of contexts for different functional business decisions.
  • Evaluate data using qualitative and sentiment analysis and model data for better predictive decisions.
Course Content

The FDP follows a unique approach wherein the first few minutes are dedicated to perspective building before the expert sessions begin. During the perspective building sessions, the participants will be familiarised with a background information about what to expect in the forthcoming sessions along with discussing interesting information about decision making.

The session will include topics such as bounded rationality, cognitive psychology, single criterion decision making, and the like. The objective of the perspective-building session is to enable the participants to build a framework so that they can better understand the sessions from the experts. The last few minutes every day would be to summarise the sessions of the day to recapture important points, and also to understand what to expect in the forthcoming sessions.
