  • Do you make or support complex decisions?
  • Do you want to maximize the investment in your data, analytics, knowledge management, and/or ML/AI to lead to better outcomes?
  • Would you like to drive your career success by learning Decision Intelligence: the discipline that helps you answer the question: “If I take this action, in this context, what will be the outcome?”

By 2023, more than 33% of large organizations will have analysts practicing decision intelligence

“Before taking this course, my analytics team wasn’t giving me data in the form that I needed to make good decisions. I would pore over their charts and graphs, and slice and dice the data in their tools, but when it came down to actually making a decision, it was often a matter of politics more than anything else. Now I know how to talk to them: in terms of outcomes I wish to achieve and actions I have to choose. ”

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Structure decision conversations around desired outcomes (financial and / or non-financial) and actions to achieve them.
  • Use state-of-the-art collaborative tools to map AI, knowledge, data, and more into decisions.
  • Find simplicity and order amongst the confusion of new data, tools, and complex decisions.
  • Provide value to your data management projects by guiding them towards the 10% of data that has 90% of the value.
  • Identify integrations between organizational silos.
  • Earn greater trust and credibility for your team.

Eight-week class starting between November 28 and December 9, 2022 at a day and time chosen to fit time zone constraints of all participants. We will take two weeks off for the holidays and finish in January.


What is Decision Intelligence?

Decision intelligence is the discipline of turning information into better actions at any scale.

“Dr. Pratt accelerated our machine learning journey with humor, intelligence, confidence, and examples that made sense. She really made the concepts accessible to non-data scientists, and we are delighted at the outcome of building our first ML model, and have the confidence to continue learning, building,
and growing in this field. We found value in the 2-day intensive workshop to put all the pieces together.”

—Chris Kreul, CTO, and Kelly Crevier, Business Intelligence Manager

“CDDs have changed the way I think about all decisions in life. I would definitely recommend this course”

“Lorien is a powerful thinker able to bring quantification to concepts that grow our understanding of complex systems. Combined with her clear logical articulation she has the rare ability to bring systematic thinking to chaos and extract order, insight and understanding. If you are operating in a fog, Lorien will shine the clear light of hypothesis making and hypothesis testing that cuts through the muddle and identifies the stepping stones for progress. She can really listen, ask pertinent and incisive questions and then reflect back what you said so that you understand what you described better than you did before the conversation began.”

“I’ve enjoyed working in energy, security, financial, marketing, technology, healthcare with industries with executives and investment firms. Decision intelligence (DI) has been a cornerstone of how I navigate complex decisions, investment strategies, and dynamic scenarios. Our DI-enabled platform for growth-driven executives, acquired by a top strategic management firm, enables a new intersection of boardroom and mission control for next-gen decision making.

Detailed in her book Link, Dr. Pratt delivers research and experiences where Decision Intelligence serves to advance a new generation of executive leadership for decades.” www.anandthakar.com

David L. Roberts, professor of Computer Science, NCSU

“With the proliferation of data, advances in AI algorithms, and new developments in hardware infrastructure, a new era of AI impacting virtually every sector of the economy, politics, and society has arrived. The pace of those innovations has also resulted in notable challenges to adoption of those technologies for many businesses. Combating those challenges involves deep expertise in not just AI and supporting technologies, but in how to help key decision makers navigate the many choices in selecting data and models, to manage complexity, and to interpret the information those techniques are providing in order to take more informed actions. Decision Intelligence (DI) is the emerging practice that delivers on this promise, democratizes access to these cutting-edge technologies, and enables more and more businesses to benefit from the power of AI. Lorien and her team are among the world leaders in delivering DI solutions across many markets, and are unparalleled in their position to deliver the DI solutions that will fundamentally change how AI is used to make better decisions.”
