“In this book it is intended to give ways of training with Human-Facilitated Interactive Learning Environments-ILEs, in order to have better decision making in complex dynamic tasks. … This is an outstanding book scientifically rigorous, fundamental and valuable in ‘Training with Human-Facilitated Interactive Learning Environments’, simultaneously conceptual and operative. Written by highly reputed contributors it is an essential reading for managers and practitioners, researchers, and students of dynamic decision making.” (Manuel Alberto M. Ferreira, International Journal of Latest Trends in Finance & Economic Sciences, Vol. 5 (2), 2015)
