The TL Saaty Ideathon will also serve as prep for the university wide T L Saaty Decision Making for Leaders Hackathon in the spring of 2023.
To honor the legacy of Distinguished University Professor Thomas L. Saaty (1926-2017), best known as the creator of the decision-making methods Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Analytic Network Process (ANP) for resolving complex problems, we launched the TL Saaty Decision Making for Leaders Hackathon in 2022.
This three day event providing expert instruction in the AHP/ANP process will be a larger team competition. Working on a selected business case you will analyze real-world use-cases and propose solutions. A panel of judges with expertise in AHP/ANP and the challenge topics will select the winning solution, earning a significant cash prize.
