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.

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.

Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Finance is the art of passing currency from hand to hand, until it finally disappears.

Let's face it, analysing numbers and doing maths might not be your idea of a great night out (otherwise you'd already probably be an accountant) but every manager needs to have a basic grip of figures. Budgets need to be set and managed, cash flows produced and monitored, business cases justified and costs controlled. Understanding finances is not only essential to the day to day running of your team or department, but can greatly aid you in making decisions; as well as becoming more efficient and productive.

Is the written word losing it's meaning?

My son, who is at University, went for an interview recently for an internship. I helped him with his preparation going over the steps that I go through when preparing for an interview. (If you are interested in this – let me know and I will make it the subject of another blog article). We discussed how to identify sensible questions he could ask and possible questions that they might ask and how he might answer those.

Blended Programmes

We understand why organisations with dispersed and/or voluntary workforces like the thought of e-learning in particular because of the reduced costs and increased accessibility associated with this type of delivery.  However, the long and short of it is that it although it is cheap and easy to distribute, it isn’t always as effective as clients might hope.

Quanta Blended Learning Programmes combine many of the benefits of e-learning with the benefits of face-to-face training.
