Olje- og energiminister Søviknes har forsøksvis tatt et … Read More

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Great ability to communicate advanced topics in an easy-to-understand format.Solving decision problems
Everyone seems to talk about framing. This is the first course I have participated in where I was taught techniques to actually do it systematically.Framing and problem structuring
I was particularly impressed with the way the instructors were open for and able to answer questions on the fly and to handle whatever cropped up as it arised.Decision analysis introductory course
Project decisions should be taken in a portfolio context. A consistent approach to project evaluation is a prerequisite for high quality portfolio analyses and maximising value creation over time.Taking a portfolio view
New technologies seem to be given way too much weight in our decision basis or none at all. The approach taught in the course will allow me to quantify it more systematically.Evaluating new technologies
