Everyone in ORF 411 needs to fill in at least one (but up to three) decisions that you are interested in. These may be drawn from a professional setting (such as your summer internship), or any other situation (personal, health, sports) that interests you. These may be decisions that you were responsible for, or decisions where you contributed by doing background analysis.

Focus on decisions that are easily quantifiable. For example, a decision to find a good restaurant that makes you "happy" is not a good setting, but finding the best menu (where you can observe revenue) would be fine.

The sheets will ask for a brief description of the decision, information about timing (when you make the decision, and when it is implemented), uncertainties that you have to deal with, and one or more performance metrics that allow you to evaluate the quality of the decision after it is implemented.

I plan on using some of these decisions as lecture examples, which will help me to keep the course relevant to the class. However, identifying and characterizing interesting decisions is a key skill that I will be emphasizing in the course.
