DEF is STEM
The Decision Quality framework we use to organize our material evolved from work in Stanford’s Management Science and Engineering department, and applies an engineering frame to the process of decision making.
In the sound reasoning and useful information decision skill domains, Decision Analysis applies mathematical principles to decision situations to achieve optimal solutions, including understanding uncertainty by using probability.
Decision Science includes the psychological study of where humans depart from rationality, and Artificial Intelligence relies upon applied decision theory.
DEF delivers STEM, practical skills critical for today’s students pursuing tomorrow’s college and career successes.
