Subject Business and Management
Traditionally, the areas of 'Decision Making' and 'Decision Making with Computers' have been regarded as separate subject specialisms. As the degree of computer literacy among students and managers has risen, a need for overlap in these subject areas is necessary. This new book addresses this change in approach. It extends the decision making ability of students and managers by increasing their use of computer aids which they already have.
