About the course
Assemble concepts, tools, and skills for applying the DQ Framework in multi-party situations.
In many decision-making situations, more than one decision body is involved. They each have different goals with differing value metrics. Applying Decision Quality (DQ) principles requires the concepts and tools of Game Theory, Multi-Criteria DQ, and the skills for designing a process for effective collaboration and negotiation. This course complements the Negotiation and Collaborative Decision Making course with the DQ framework applied in multi-party settings and the rigor of negotiation analysis and risk sharing.
