Decision Making

This experience-based course introduces participants to a comprehensive yet flexible decision-making framework that can be used for all types of decisions. Participants experience each step in the framework first-hand through a variety of individual, small-group, and large group exercises. As the participants discuss and learn about decision-making, they will use the Decision Making Portrait, a self-reflective tool, to analyze their personal decision making approach. Because many decisions in organizations today are made by groups, participants also explore group decision-making through an in-depth, experiential case study.
