The DPS June meeting will be happening on Thursday 1st June at out usual venue KIVI in Den Haag. Door will open for pre-meeting coffees at 15:30, and the meeting commences at 16:00.  Note that as for the previous meeting we will be holding the meeting in the ‘Molkamer’ on the first floor rather than our previous venue the Grote Zaal.

Jean-Paul Koninx from DecisionQraft will be presenting a talk on The Value of Data for Decision Making. The talk abstract and speaker bio is below.

After the meeting there will be our usual social with drinks at a local cafe.

As always, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, attendance is free for members of the DPS.

Abstract: We make many decisions, all the time, consciously and unconsciously. Some are easy, while others keep us up at night. If only we knew the outcomes … But we don’t. Uncertainty is what makes it hard to make some decisions, and the fear of poor outcomes.

When you simply assign a bad outcome to “bad luck”, you are not doing yourself a favour. You give away your agency for decision making and the opportunity to learn.

Everyone can learn what it takes to make a better-quality decision, every time. We can’t predict future with certainty. But we can increase the odds for better outcomes by crafting better quality decisions. To get more of what we value, with more transparency, and less stress.

Learn more about crafting quality decisions in this 1-hour introduction.

About the speaker: 

Jean-Paul Koninx left Shell in January 2023, after almost 30 years in a variety of subsurface and Front-End development related roles, in The Netherlands, Venezuela, Australia, Oman, Norway, and – until the spring of 2022 – Russia. Making decisions under uncertainty has been the red thread during this time, and he was closely involved in Shell’s Organisational Decision Quality efforts over the past 5 years.

In January 2023 he started DecisionQraft (www.DecisionQraft.com), dedicated to help crafting quality decisions, combining the science of decision analysis with the art of dealing with people.
