On the Evolution of an Academic Course


  • Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, Department of Decision Sciences and Information Systems Area, Bangalore, India


This is an interview to unearth the efforts of an innovator in developing a new course in a Post Graduate management programme. The thought process in developing a new course is in establishing connectivity between logic and evidence by searching for a pattern through the Input- Throughput-Output-Outcome paradigm. The science of decision making is strong in logic and hence there is expectation of a perfect outcome. In many cases reality does not work that way. The ability to link the unconnected may emerge as an outcome of the new course. Decision-making, in the real world of uncertainty consisting of multifarious dimensions, is an art by itself. The course may provide cues as to how to make decisions despite many hidden variables present in life of which management is a part.
