Executive education program in English
Today’s business leaders are increasingly forced to make quick decisions. Good managers instinctively set out to make reasoned, well thought out judgment calls, yet a rational approach to tackling decisions is only one side of the story. Too often, too much emphasis is placed on intuition, and personal biases begin to influence – and fatally flaw – the decision-making process. Doubtless, this process should be complemented with sound analysis.
The Art of Decision Making program looks at both sides of the equation. Combining an international peer group and distinguished faculty, the program merges practical experience with up-to-date theoretical concepts. In addition to discussing case studies and participating in individual and group exercises, participants will explore their decision making style and tackle common decision-making challenges.
The program is designed to help managers achieve greater insight and learn to exercise sound judgment by honing decision-making skills and designing more effective group processes. Participants will learn to avoid common decision-making mistakes by breaking problems into manageable parts, effectively analyzing information, considering alter natives, and identifying the objectives they need to achieve. Finally, they will gain a greater understanding of their own decision making style and personal biases, how these affect the decisions they make, and how to prevent them from influencing future decisions.

Managers in all functions who are actively engaged in decision making during uncertainty and risk.
