Providing evidence-based decision making frameworks to analysts, senior managers, executives, and policymakers is a challenge to several sectors. The Department of Management Science at Strathclyde Business School is home to the Informed Decision Analytics (IDeA) Centre.
IDeA was established to provide a link between the innovative decision-science methodologies developed in academia with the grand societal challenges facing government, industry and the third sector. Working collaboratively, IDeA seeks to deliver impactful solutions for our partners by solving the real challenges around significant problems rather than solving niche academic curiosities. Utilising our academic status, we seek to deliver focused research and development for collaborators by leveraging funding targeted at innovation.
