Managerial Decision-Making

Leaders are responsible for making critical decisions that often have significant implications for people, operations, and business results. If too little or no time is spent assessing and learning from bad decisions, mistakes are needlessly repeated. This course focuses on how to identify the factors that lead you to make incorrect conclusions, the impact of your own biases, and how to evaluate the risks and minimize their negative effects on decision making.

The intent of this course is to help you:

  • Recognize and explain why there is a need for a thoughtful, disciplined approach to decision making
  • Identify the forces at work that affect your judgment and decisions
  • Recognize and explain how your judgment may be affected by your ability to capture and interpret relevant information
  • Relate concepts from previous courses that affect decision making
