Creative Decisions Foundation Events

T. L. Saaty Decision Making Ideathon

Swanson Engineering School, University of Pittsburgh

The panel of judges will be composed of professionals from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences related to the topic at hand and the decision-making methods. Judges will include members from the international AHP/ANP community of academics and practitioners and professionals/executives that work with the business partner. The panel of judges for the preliminary and final rounds will differ.

Presentations will be judged based on the teams ability to analyze the information presented by the business partner, clearly define the problem to be solved, effectively use the decision-making methods, be creative in their proposed solution, and communicate a recommended course of action. Importance will be placed on the creativity of the proposed alternatives and the feasibility of the teams solution.

Judges will ask questions and give feedback at the end of each presentation.
