Overview

This title confidently 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 types of decision-making approaches with a more fluid, and therefore realistic model that can be applied across a wide range of contexts and decisions.

A new title on a important topic that not only stands well on its own, but also complements Chapman and Ward's previous title Project Risk Management. This book is practical and rigorous yet written in an engaging way.

It is perfect for courses, or to be used by practitioners.
