RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Shaikh’s current work focuses on isolating and understanding how various elements of decision support media influence the quality of managerial decision-making. It is expected that this would lead to improved decision-support systems design that would enable humans to circumvent systematic and motivational biases. His previous work has studied negotiation support systems, cross-organizational workflow design, subjective decision evaluation systems and flexible and scalable architectures for SMEs. Dr. Shaikh has also been an active case writer in the areas of business intelligence, general business strategy and decision simulation/modeling with publications in the prestigious NACRA’s Case Research Journal, ICIS Case Track proceedings and on the Harvard Business School catalog. Business sectors Dr. Shaikh has published and consulted in include telecoms, pharmaceuticals, agri-business (dairy), soft drinks retailing, footwear retailing and e-commerce.
