  • 25 outstanding papers applying rigorous research methods to important societal and business decision environments
  • How accelerating technology innovation is transforming decision making
  • For all decision makers, and all decision science researchers and students

Decision science offers powerful insights and techniques that help people make better decisions to improve business and society. This volume brings together peer-reviewed papers chosen as “best of the best” by the field’s leading organization, the Decision Sciences Institute.

 

Authored by respected researchers and academics from around the world, these papers were presented at DSI’s 45th Annual Meeting in Tampa, Florida in November 2014. The authors explore multiple decision environments, from emergency response to supply chain outsourcing. They address a wide spectrum of critical issues, including better ways to utilize information systems, new opportunities to improve business operations and strategy, and new analytical techniques for healthcare and quality.

 

Each paper offers actionable insights for decision-makers of all kinds, in business, public policy, non-profit organizations, and beyond. This work also identifies important new research directions likely to shape the future of decision science.

 

This book brings together 25 leading-edge research projects conducted throughout the multi-disciplinary fields of decision sciences. Honored as the best work presented at DSI’s November 2014 worldwide conference, these papers show how to apply rigorous quantitative and behavioral approaches to improve performance in virtually any decision environment.

 

The work in this collection addresses functions including information systems, manufacturing/service management, supply chain management, finance, marketing, management, accounting, and decision support. It also addresses critical decisions made in institutional environments such as healthcare, public administration, and higher education.

 

The first set of papers applies advanced information systems to problems ranging from disaster response to customer satisfaction. Next, several papers apply advanced analytics to problems of healthcare management and quality assessment, introducing techniques that can be adapted to many operational environments.

 

You’ll find important new findings on operations research and organizational strategy, as well as valuable new insights into the decision-making impact of national culture, situational awareness, knowledge heterogeneity, and relational capital.

 

These papers combine deep academic rigor with wide practical value. They open fruitful new opportunities for researchers—and for everyone who makes decisions that matter.

  • Pioneering quantitative and behavioral approaches, frameworks, and methodologies
  • Improving decision-making through more effective use of advanced technologies
  • Advanced analytics to improve healthcare outcomes
  • Decision optimization in supply chains and operations management
  • Operations research advances, from credit scoring to aircraft boarding
  • Strategic decision-making, including impacts of corporate social responsibility

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.
