Description - Tools for Thinking by Michael Pidd
The third edition of Tools for Thinking builds on the
successes of the previous two editions. It creates a bridge between
the soft and hard (Operations Research) OR schools of thought and

Focusing on modelling as an activity, rather than on models and

possible future scenarios and to make sense of managerial
This third edition has been fully revised and updated without
changing its focus. It features a new chapter on Decision
Analysis and includes up-to-date examples using popular softwares,
such as Precision Tree, @Risk and Micro Saint
Sharp, to illustrate how these help in developing and using
management science models as tools for thinking
