Empirical Evidence on Dynamic Decision-Making and ILEs

  • Hassan Qudrat-Ullah
Chapter
Part of the Understanding Complex Systems book series (UCS)

Abstract

Simulation-based decisional aids play a critical role in the education and training of managerial decision-making. In the previous chapter, we have established an empirical research-based assertion that there is an increasing need to design human-facilitated ILEs for improving managerial decision-making in dynamic tasks. This chapter is devoted to the research related to the two core threads of thinking that identify the critical factors for the design of such an interactive learning environment. The core threads are (1) dynamic decision-making (DDM) and (2) simulation-based interactive learning environments.
