The Institute offers professional development for members at all stages of their careers. Sessions at the annual meeting and feature articles in Decision Line are designed to provide insight into the challenges and opportunities in today's rapidly changing industry and classrooms.
For research that advances decision making at the interfaces of business functions and organizational boundaries, see Decision Sciences, the Institute's premier journal. Teaching and learning issues in the decision sciences are covered extensively in the Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education.
In addition, the DSI Instructional Innovation Competition Award recognizes outstanding creative instructional approaches within the decision sciences while providing a framework to share insights with attendees at the annual meetings. The focus of the competition is innovation in college- or university-level teaching, either quantitative systems and/or behavioral methodology in its own right, or within functional/disciplinary areas such as finance, marketing, management information systems, operations, and human resources (see past award winners).
