Risky Decisions seminar open to all

All are invited to a seminar by Professor Chun Wei Choo - Risky Decisions: Information and the enactment of meaning, knowledge, and decisions - on Wednesday 29 June at Leeds University Business School

Jointly organised by the AIMTech research group and the Centre for Decision Research, the seminar will take place at 12.00-1.30 in Room 1.44, Keyworth Building.

Decision making in high-risk situations is often made more difficult by several conditions: messages about the meaning and significance of events are ambiguous; knowledge about causes and solutions is incomplete or unavailable; and learned decision rules and routines may no longer be tenable. We review theoretical models that explore these concerns and show through case examples how risky decision making is bound up with the dynamics of sensemaking and knowledge creation.

Chun Wei Choo is a leading authority on the use of information by organisations.  He works in the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. His recent books include The Knowing Organization; The Strategic Management of Intellectual Capital and Organizational Knowledge and Information Management for the Intelligent Organization.

More information about Professor Choo's projects and publications are set out at his website.
