About the Author:

The Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) is an independent nonprofit educational multidisciplinary professional organization of academicians and practitioners interested in the application of quantitative and behavioral approaches to all managerial decision making in business, government, and society.

 

Through national, international, and regional conferences, competitions, and publications, the Institute provides an international forum for presenting and sharing research in the study of decision processes across disciplines. The Institute also plays a vital role in the academic community by offering professional development activities and job placement services.

 

Five regional subdivisions in the United States, as well as regions representing Europe, Mexico, Asia-Pacific, and the Indian subcontinent, operate independently within the Institute. Each region has its own elected officers and holds annual meetings.

 

Our members specialize in functional areas such as information systems, finance, marketing, management, accounting, manufacturing/service management, supply chain management, and decision support processes, as well as institutional areas such as healthcare, public administration, resource management, and higher education. They employ leading rigorous research techniques, including experimental designs, empirical quantitative analysis, optimization, simulation, surveys, and other scientific methods, while also valuing innovative methodological horizons.

 

The Institute’s goals are to

  1. enrich the diverse disciplines of the decision sciences;
  2. integrate these disciplines into bodies of knowledge that are effectively utilized for decision making;
  3. develop theoretical bases for such fundamental processes as implementation, planning, and design of decision systems; and
  4. improve educational programs in the decision sciences.
