Executive Master Class: Creating a culture of effective decision-making: skills, tools and strategies for managers, executives and team leaders

Course Overview

Good decision-making is the foundation of business success. Over time, better business decisions can be expected to yield better outcomes in terms of revenue, market share and profitability. Indeed, ultimately, better decisions are the only way that businesses can maximise the probability of achieving their objectives in a competitive, complex and uncertain market place.

Companies, however, do not make decisions, people do; and research has consistently revealed that the organisational environment in which individuals are situated has a profound impact on the quality of those decisions–decisions on which the success of your company depends.

Give your company a competitive edge

Perfect for both individuals and teams, this intensive, half-day course provides managers, executives, team leaders and others in a leadership role with a range of skills, tools and strategies that can be used to create a long term culture of effective decision-making in their company—defined as an organisational environment that is likely to result in decisions that are consistently aligned with company objectives and capabilities and maximise the probability of good outcomes.

Facilitators: Dr. Seth Nicholls and Ms Cheree Taylor.
