German to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Management / Risk analysis in projects
German term or phrase: Entscheidungsbaum
Entscheidungsbäume stellen eine Methode dar, um in ungewissen Situationen die beste Vorgehensweise zu wählen.
The same text (that talks about risk analysis) also uses the term Entscheidungsbaumanalyse. Decision tree or the like doesnt sound great to me.
Any better choices??
Thanks in advance

Unfortunately despite Stephen's argument about his having answered earlier, I will have to grant it to David because he was the one who gave the link in there while Stephen's note with the link came in 6 mins later. Thanks to you too Stephen for your contribution.
