A constant frustration in business today is the decision making process. This program will help participants to strategically frame a problem objectively and decide a course of action.

Why is problem solving and decision making so difficult?

People often lose faith in a company/individual if they perceive poor decision making and/or poor problem solving. Even more frustrating is the procrastination of making a decision (We'll tell you more later).

This program helps participants understand the decision making process and will equip participants with the skills and techniques to frame a problem objectively and decide a course of action.

Action Plan

  1. How to develop the skills to conceptualise a problem through the eyes of all stakeholders and not from a myopic perspective.
  2. How to help participants to dig for the source of the problem instead of constantly fixing symptoms of the problem.
  3. How to understand how organisational decision making can differ from individual decision making.
  4. How to understand how emotions can influence decision making.
  5. How to reduce risks when making decisions.
  6. How to overcome the 'save my ass' hurdle that academics have identified why people won't make a decision.
  7. How to use precedents as a tool to share your beliefs with other people.
  8. How to gain approval and motivate the senior management team.
