Books in Organisations and Decision Theory
This book is about taking advantage of the opportunities that the now rather mature digitisation offers in a world of abundance of data. The book goes through digitisation based on what an organisation really is and what it needs. We describe how to understand its goals, develop its strategies, and shape its business models. We describe in detail how to achieve this by developing organisations, processes, decisions, configurations, and project implementations.

How on Earth did this happen? The question is not infrequent, but more to the point, it?s unnecessary. It arises because in many cases people haven?t thought things through beforehand. Yes, sometimes people can be unlucky, but far from every time that things go awry; bad luck is never so consistent ? by definition. Thinking things through properly beforehand might seem a fairly obvious requirement for making a good decision, but startlingly often, even critical decisions are made without any in depth analysis. Well, there may have been some background data lying around somewhere. The book Transcending Business Intelligence covers how decision processes and decision methods can be greatly improved.

There are basically two categories of books on decision-making. One tells stories of how intuition guides decision-making. The other delineates a formal approach, based on decision-trees or matrices, often impenetrable to real-life decision makers. This book combines the best elements of both perspectives in a way that can be easily understood by all who are struggling with complex decisions, either as individuals or as organisations. It demonstrates how intuition and psychological insights can be harnessed to design relevant models and decision strategies, and describes how goals can be adequately formed and operationalised. Finally, the book integrates these processes in an analytical framework for decision-making.
