How do you manage decisions?

Two new open enrolment courses to help executives and managers face the challenges of decision making are being run by LSE Executive Education.

Managing decisions efficiently can lead to a 30 per cent budget increase - but poor choices can seriously damage a company's effectiveness.

Managing Decision Challenges: evaluation, prioritisation and resource allocation| and Managing Decision Challenges: facilitating groups| have been created to tackle common problems surrounding decision management in the workplace.

The first course focuses on making decisions, managing conflicting objectives effectively, dealing with uncertainty, considering trade-offs among projects and increasing the transparency of decisions - all key drivers in improving decision quality.

The second course teaches participants how to increase the quality of decisions involving groups, developing skills in facilitating work groups and decision conferences. It also provides material on understanding organisations and issues of accountability and authority, roles and role relationships, strategic thinking, and process consultancy that will enhance each participant's ability to work effectively in organisations.

Both courses are aimed at executives and managers from private and public sectors facing complex decisions in their organisations.
