SDP Free Webinar
23 Jan, 2019 | 8:00 am PT / 11:00 am ET
Speaker: Steven Glickman, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Senior Systems Engineer
Moderator: Troy Helm, Senior Consultant, Strategic Decisions Group
In large-scale projects and programs, many decisions are made and often the choice in one decision impacts the value and choices that should be made in another decision. However, if this linkage is not recognized, significant value can be lost. In this presentation, we will describe one of these problems and identify techniques for more reliably identifying linkage and dealing with it appropriately. Mission Command, a decision-making framework first developed in the military, will be discussed in the context of identifying and dealing with decision linkage.
Steven Glickman is a Senior Systems Engineer in Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Over his 30-plus year career at Boeing, he has worked on a wide variety of decision problems including Air Traffic Management concepts, airplane development trade studies, R&D decision analysis, risk management, and supply chain strategies. He was one of the original decision analysts that introduced decision analysis to the company and helped institutionalize tornado diagrams as a decision-making tool.
