Courses assisted with: Finance; Decision Making in a Complex Environment; Creativity (MBA), Religious Traditions of India; Religious Traditions of China; Myth, Symbol, and Ritual. Responsibilities varied by course but all included assisting students with academic development. I have written study manuals to support courses for both Myth, Symbol, and Ritual as well as Decision Making in a Complex environment. In more recent course, I instructed students in understanding the Analytic Hierarchic Process and Analytic Network Process for decision making with respect to 'wicked problems.' I taught executive MBA students in the use of SuperDecisions software developed by Dr. Thomas Saaty and Expert Choice. Applications developed in class were use in executive choices in real-world situations. Additionally, I supervised the development of reports based on sound analysis that included vigorous methodologies grounded in finance, economics, and strategic management.
