The co-author of Smart Choices will provide practical advice in approaching decisions about life, career, having a child, and purchasing a home at the annual meeting of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) in Seattle.

Dr. Ralph L. Keeney, Research Professor of Decision Sciences at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, is co-author of Smart Choices, A Practical Guide to Making Better Decisions, a Harvard Business School publication. He will share decision-making techniques that people can use in their personal lives, at work, and in school.

Dr.Keeney is available for interview.

Topic: IFORS Distinguished Lecture - Using Operations Research to Improve the Quality of Your Life
Who: Prof. Ralph L. Keeney
Date: Monday, November 5, 2007
Time: 11:40 AM 12:30 PM
Place: Washington State Convention & Trade Center, Seattle, WA

Operations research is the application of sound logic and advanced analytical methods to help making better decisions. Operations researchers help companies, governments, and organizations make better decisions.

Dr. Keeney maintains that operations research concepts, techniques, and tools can help all of us make important decisions in our lives. His presentation will outline guidelines for systematic thinking and analysis to help people improve the quality of their lives.

Since individuals can purposefully influence the quality of their lives only by their decisions, says Dr. Keeney, an individual first needs to define what he or she means by quality of life. This can be done by creating a coherent set of life objectives. Using these, an individual should recognize decision opportunities, create alternatives, and make decisions that further these life objectives.

The presentation includes procedures to help one examine life-changing decisions, personal policy choices, and fundamental life tradeoffs, such as time, health and money.
