Abstract

This report presents research conducted on developing a systematic decision making process for Rovi Corporation (Rovi) to select the best candidate for their vacant senior program manager position. Analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is used as the main methodology, which resulted in a four-level hierarchical decision model (HDM) composed of the qualifications and requirements of the senior program manager. Management staff at Rovi verified all elements of each level in the HDM. An expert panel at Rovi was used to weight the criteria in the HDM, and the research team weighted the candidates based on their resumes. The candidate with the highest amount of contribution to the goal is presented in the results. This report concludes with a comparison between the research team’s recommendation and Rovi’s selected candidate.
