About the course

Effective decision-making takes strategic insight and the right set of frameworks, methods and tools. But the most rigorous decision-making processes fall apart if you're not asking the right questions to begin with.

In this one-day workshop, you will join other professionals for a hands-on immersion into the art and science of strategic decision-making. With a series of cases, hands-on scenarios, and facilitated discussions to bridge theory and practice, you will learn to:

  • Better synthesize data and stakeholder input to formulate better, more comprehensive strategic questions
  • Manage participative decision-making process to take advantage of collective intelligence and avoid 'groupthink'
  • Use evidence-based techniques to avoid common psychological "decision traps"
  • More effectively identify and mitigate risks and 'blind spots' in decision-making
  • Present decisions and seek input in ways that builds stakeholders' commitment and buy-in

Who should attend

Ideal for managers and executives from all functional areas involved in strategic decision-making.
