This paper is a review on theories used in previous studies for decision making in project management studies. A mapping of most frequent theories being used forwarded for discussion. Description. Decision theory provides a formal framework for making logical choices in the face of uncertainty.
Given a set of alternatives, a set of consequences, and a correspondence between those sets, decision theory offers conceptually simple procedures for choice. This book presents an overview of the fundamental concepts and outcomes of rational decision making under uncertainty, highlighting the implications for statistical practice.
In order to become a great project manager, you need to know how to work with a lot of moving parts, organize teams, meet deadlines and stay within budget. Project management is complex and requires elements of psychology, business and even game theory.

The study moves beyond the traditional power-based frameworks employing six key influential attributes to examine their direct and mediating effects on project.

The first section (Chapters 1 through 4) provides an overview of project management. These chapters address the theory. Over the years, the Project Management Institute (PMI) has attempted to get a large number of authors to contribute to case studies in project management.
The idea is to use these cases as a means to accelerate the project management. Providing a project management theory, therefore, has the potential to light the way toward better tool building.
The structure of the paper is as follows. After a review of the relevant literature, we develop an analogy between other theories and project management.

In doing so, it identifies the activities comprising managerial decision-making and discusses common decision-making practices, including the often-used. Theory of Cost-Benefit Analysis function. The interpretation, specification and necessity of the objective function will be discussed in detail below.
The process of judging whether or not a project should be accepted is called project evaluation. Cost-benefit analysis is the examination of a decision. Project management is the practice of leading the work of a team to achieve goals and meet success criteria at a specified time.
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints. This information is usually described in project.

Effective decision making involves deciding on a method, establishing roles, choosing a reasonable alternative and evaluating the outcome.
