Concepts & Cases

Making Better Decisions:  Concepts & Cases
In this course students will learn an empirically-grounded 7-step decision-making process, and a variety of research-based conceptual frameworks, for addressing challenging personal and professional decision-making dilemmas.  Students will then apply the process and conceptual frameworks to address detailed case studies describing personal or professional challenges faced by decision makers.  Specifically, students will identify (in writing) an appropriate research-based conceptual framework, identifying the key variables that need to be considered; having done so, they will recommend (in writing) a solution to the challenge, supporting their recommendation with evidence and reasoning.  The different approaches and recommended solutions will be discussed.  In the final week of the course, students will have a chance to write their own challenging case studies, and to have their challenges discussed by the class.
