I have been a leading proponent in the Bayesian statistics community of the use of elicitation to formulate expert knowledge about uncertain quantities.
I can offer various options for training in elicitation. I have two established training courses in the theory and practice of elicitation, and can also arrange mock elicitation sessions to further develop facilitation skills. The next open course will be in January 2018.
I have conducted expert elicitations for HMIP (now part of the Health Protection Agency), Risk Management Solutions Ltd, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, the European Food Safety Authority, GlaxoSmithKline and the Centre for Workforce Intelligence. Methods that I developed have been coded into software which has been widely used in the water and rail industries, and I have advised a number of users of those methods.
My one-day general course on elicitation has been given to Evira (Finland), Pfizer (UK), Novartis (Switzerland and USA), Procter and Gamble (USA), the University of Texas at Austin (USA), the University of St Andrews (UK), the Netherlands Forensic Institute (Netherlands), Humboldt University (Germany), Chalmers University (Sweden) and also as an open-entry course at Warwick University.
My three-day intensive course has been given at GlaxoSmithKline (UK and USA), the University of St Andrews (UK) and Chalmers University (Sweden).
Risk assessment and management is an important field that has special challenges. Experts are often called upon to assess risks smaller than can be informed by real data. Risk typically depends on the occurrence of extreme events, and particularly on the concurrence of several extreme values. From the perspective of elicitation, this poses particular difficulties in assessing the tails of probability distributions and correlations between variables. I can offer some novel methods to address these challenges.
I am happy to consult on these or other problems in elicitation.
