About this book

Problems with high stakes, involving human perceptions and judgements, and whose resolutions have long-term repercussions, call for a rational approach to their solution. Strategic Decision Making provides an effective, formal methodology that gives assistance to such strategic level decision making problems. Focusing on applying the AHP to decision-making problems in engineering, Strategic Decision Making explores the three main endeavours of human existence: business, defence and governance. Many years of successfully applying Strategic Decision Making in these domains have created extensive results covering many complex planning, resource, allocation and priority setting problems throughout industry and business. Case studies drawn from years of successful, practical application experience. Discusses applications of decision making for real life problems. Worked examples and solutions to problems throughout. The reader will gain comprehensive exposure to the extent of assistance that a formal methodology, such as AHP, can provide to the decision maker in evolving decisions in complex and varied domains. Decision makers, in business and industry around the world, will find this valuable for practical use as a working tool.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is one in the valuable Decision Engineering series that focuses on the foundations and applications of tools and techniques related to decision engineering and identifies their roles in making decisions. … We recommend this book for graduate-level students as well as all decision makers, especially in business and in government. Clearly, as demonstrated by the examples in the book, AHP can be applied to most subjects." (John Wang and Qiyang Chen, Interfaces, Vol. 35 (3), 2005)
