Burke Robinson teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on decision making in organizations, decision analysis applications, and decision analysis projects - all with a pragmatic focus on how to improve the quality of both decision process and content. Example strategy and policy applications, case studies of real decisions, interactive demonstrations, and "war stories" are drawn from more than 30 years of his consulting career. Guest lectures are provided by experienced management consultants.
In an experiential learning environment, students in these courses develop their skills using state-of-the art methods and techniques for framing, structuring, modeling, assessing, analyzing, and implementing some of the actual decisions being made in a variety of different organizations - from the private sector to the public sector, from businesses to non-profits, from educational to healthcare institutions, and from community groups to non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Prof. Robinson also has a long-standing interest in crisis decision making, a subject that appears increasingly relevant as unintended consequences occur more frequently in a rapidly changing world. His dissertation on Crisis Decision Analysis identified concepts, processes, and tools that still have relevance today for crisis leadership preparedness strategies and crisis management response tactics.
