Structured Analytic Techniques


Skills institutes are one-credit courses offered in an online format or as part of the required in-person immersion at MAIR online. Skills institute offerings are subject to change each term.

This course introduces students to multiple qualitative structured analytic tools and techniques they can use to structure analysis, generate forecasts, and avoid major mistakes. In numerous hands-on exercises, students practice specific skills to help them overcome mindsets, organize information, diagnose problems, explore different ways of thinking, and avoid surprise.
