Effective Decision Making

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
Overview

As a manager, you will be required to make decisions every day. Some minor, some important with far reaching consequences. Recent studies show that despite what we might think, we are not as good at making decisions as we think we are.
This fascinating hands-on course explores the world of decision-making and presents a number of tools and techniques which can be used to make decisions, exploring your own personal approach to decision making; as well as looking at the very latest thinking on the various biases that can fool us all when it comes to making those tough calls.
