This tutorial, part 2 of a two part series on Knowledge Based Selection, demonstrates the selection processes and capabilities of Knowledge Based Selection Methods and Tools. These tools, integrated with business decision making procedures, can arguably reduce selection risk and improve chances for success in IT projects.

The process gave confidence to the argument to wait for the solution, while weighing risk against return.

However, as I've gone without a PDA for most of the years of my life, a little more waiting is not likely to kill me, in part reflected by the low priority I have given availability. I also reason if I am to get one, it had better be good. I decide to take the risk, as the rest of the evidence favors the
