What is AHP Practitioner?

AHP is built on the understanding that while making a decision, several criteria exist, but all the criteria are not equally weighed. If weights are assigned to different criteria, they must not be arbitrary, else the decisions made will still not be logical. This means that a common problem is that comparison of alternatives is usually not done with a repeatable or a reasonably accurate method. Analytical Hierarchy Method is a scientific method with inbuilt checks and balances that takes care of these inherent fallacies in decision making.


 Every business and every corporate takes multiple decisions involving comparisons, every given minute. Decision making of non-reversible nature but with far-reaching consequences should not rely on gut or basic brainstorming techniques. We have conducted this course for 20 MBB batches in the past.


To participants will understand step by step approach for choosing from multiple available alternatives using meaningful criteria, with the right importance attached to them. The participants will fully appreciate how to set up and use the scientific, repeatable and reliable approach.

Most frequent questions and answers

Q1: How does the AHP methodology work?

AHP methodology provides a versatile framework for making complex decisions. It involves modeling multi-criteria decision problems, evaluating alternatives, and the final step of deriving priorities. Rather than imposing a “correct” decision, applying AHP allows decision makers to create a ranking of alternatives and then choosing the best one. At the core of AHP methodology is a pairwise comparisons method.

Q2: What is Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)?

While making a decision, several criteria exist, but all the criteria are not equally weighed. If weights are assigned to different criteria, they must not be arbitrary, else the decisions made will still not be logical. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a multi-criteria decision making process with inbuilt checks and balances that takes care of these inherent fallacies in decision making.

Q3: Is AHP mathematics intensive?

AHP is one of the most advanced techniques in operations research involving higher level mathematics. Even though performing the calculations pertaining to AHP are an ordeal, we simplify this in the course via excel sheets.
