The book combines topics from two traditionally distinct quantitative subjects: probability/statistics and optimization models, into one unified treatment of quantitative methods and models for management and business. The book stresses those fundamental concepts that are most important for the practical analysis of management decisions: modeling and evaluating uncertainty explicitly, understanding the dynamic nature of decision-making, using historical data and limited information effectively, simulating complex systems, and allocating scarce resources optimally.
When I emailed the authors about receiving supplemental information (see quoted book description below) I was told that since I was not an instructor they would not provide additional resources. Therefore, the statement below that was presented in the book description is false advertising as the supplemental information would not be provided to students or practitioners, just faculty. Also, the book did not come with the CD or any data sets, etc.
"The book contains many real business cases from the authors consulting experience. There are Powerpoint presentation slides for lecture material, a solution manual and other instructor resources available that can be obtained by contacting the authors directly ( firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com )".
I would not have purchased this book if I had known that they would not provide supplemental learning information.
Please note: Looks like the authors have changed their wording in the description since my communication to them, now saying they will only provide supplemental information to faculty. This does not change the fact they did not provide the information as was indicated in the book description. Its too bad as the only thing I wanted was to supplement my learning.
