European Master and Certification Program
in Risk Engineering and Management

Learn about robust decision making in risk management!

In the framework of the EU FP7 project iNTeg-Risk "Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks", Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners have set up a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program with the emphasis on management and analysis of emerging risks related to new technologies. Herewith, we announce the forthcoming course

Decision Aid Approaches for Risk Management

April 22 - 26, 2013
Stuttgart, Germany

Lecturer: Chabane Mazri

The course is open for students of the universities and employees of the companies participating in the project, as well as for the external participants.

Decision making is a process where multiple factors interact to shape the final outcome. Those factors can be technical, informational, emotional/psychological, cultural… Nevertheless, the limited rationality of economic operators makes the decision exercise more and more difficult in a more and more complex world. Safety management requires short, mid and long term decisions that may highly influence the ability of the organization to cope with its risks.

In order to help managers when dealing with their complex environment, decision aid approaches can be implemented so to:

  1. allow a better understanding of the decision context, stakes and possible consequences
  2. elaborate a formal description of the problem to be resolved and the stakeholders to involve
  3. develop mathematical based models and tools that help decision making including multicriteria approaches and KPIs definition
  4. develop validation and uncertainties management approaches for decision making.

At the end of the course, students are expected to have basic knowledge about:

  • Main descriptive and prescriptive concepts related to decision making in risk management
  • A vision of the key decision making moments of risk management frameworks
  • A global vision of the tools available to improve the way managers are dealing with decision making.
