How to make quality decisions under conditions of uncertainty – A Decision Analysis Approach

Tassos Nicolaou
President & CEO, Delpor, Inc.

Should I invest in a new venture? Launch a new clinical trial? Conduct an expensive experiment? Partner with another company? Pursue IP litigation? These decisions would all be easy if we can only predict the future. However, nobody has a crystal ball and we all have to make decisions based on limited information.

What are the key considerations in making quality decisions when dealing with an uncertain outcome? This talk will use a simple but real exercise in order to illustrate some of the key elements (“distinctions”) one should consider when making decisions under conditions of uncertainty.
