Palisade sponsors newly-launched
Society of Decision Professionals (SDP)

Risk analyst specialist supports promotion of decision professionals as trusted advisors

17 August 2010 - Risk and decision analysis software specialist, Palisade has announced its decision to sponsor the Society of Decision Professionals.

Launched in the summer of 2010, the purpose of the Society of Decision Professionals (SDP) is to foster collaboration, continual learning and networking to bring clarity and insight into the decision-making process.  A key aim is to promote the role of the decision professional within organisations as someone who can provide guidance to those responsible for making important and complex decisions.

A leader in its field, Palisade has had strong relationships with some of the founding members of the SDP for many years.  Its sponsor status will see it provide input on various industry issues and advise on topics that will be of value for the SDP’s education programs.

Carl Spetzler, a fellow and board member at the Society for Decision Professionals, comments: “We are pleased to have Palisade, one of the premier suppliers of software tools to decision professionals, as a sponsor. The Society benefits the Palisade user groups by providing them with career development opportunities, as well as the ability to create greater value for their customers, the decision makers.  The members of the society are always interested in the best software tools and services that organizations such as Palisade provide.”

“Palisade welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with the Society of Decision Professionals provide input from its inception,” says Sam McLafferty, president of Palisade Corporation. “It will also be interesting to get a ‘big picture’ view in terms of the industry sectors and organisational roles that join, as this will provide a useful barometer for attitudes to risk and decision analysis.”
