This course focuses on the three underlying and fundamental principles of successful decision-making : objectives, alternatives and risk. The purpose of the course is to equip delegates with an effective and straightforward decision-making methodology which will enhance rational thought processes, reduce risk and boost performance.
This highly experiential course is designed to help delegates discover how to use both sides of the brain, to enhance their creative approach to key decisions they face. Mental dexterity is a powerful weapon in the pursuit of excellence. Delegates will consider not only the linear but also the lateral and intuitive elements that make up the decision-making process. In doing so, they will be able to use flexible thinking to enhance their current and future.
On this course delegates will learn how to use a number of tools to improve analytical, creative and innovative thinking, giving them a clear methodology for decision-making. This will enable them to overcome the two opposing dangers of procrastination or rushed decisions which can result from the overwhelming burden of information which the modern workplace generates.
Considering how the brain processes information leads to work on: awareness of unconscious assumptions, decision-making triggers and mind mapping.
By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
• Increase their ability to come up with ideas and generate options
• Attain knowledge of and apply several creative thinking tools
• Understand the concept of judgement and apply structured methods and enhanced skills to the decision-making process
• Avoid the danger of unchecked assumptions
• Learn a straight forward and effective approach to problem analysis and risk management
• Recognise opportunities for, and lead, effective group problem solving sessions
• Understand the rational and emotional drivers in decision-making
• Retain objectivity when setting priorities
• Use practical instruments such as decision trees
