What’s a Decision Tree?
A decision tree is a simple decision support tool that helps people make better decisions. You’ll find them used in all kinds of professions, from finance to aviation. If you’ve recently visited a doctor you’ll probably have seen them peering at a PC as they ask you a series of questions; they’re following a decision tree to arrive at a diagnosis.
Why use Decision Trees to build Procedures?
A decision tree has a fixed logical structure. As a result, decision makers find them quick and straightforward to use. In contrast, traditional procedural formats such as flow charts, can be confusing and time consuming to navigate.
What are popular Decision Trees?
Almost any procedure can be recorded using a decision tree. Our customers have developed decision trees for everything from mental health to key safety protocols. We recommend building them for any low frequency, high impact scenario which require decisions to be made quickly.
Here at SIRV we use decision trees all the time, our tech team for example, will use them for our disaster recovery back-up procedure.
