The Mathematics of Uncertainty with Brian Putt

Date: Thursday 6th July 2023

How can uncertainty improve your decision making? Director of the Society of Decision Professionals Brian Putt demonstrated how not including uncertainty when making a decision may result in an outcome very different than expected.

We learned how the decision quality process requires evaluating alternatives and not just the momentum case or most likely case.
