Effective decision makers are those rare individuals who are able to consistently identify and choose the best option among multiple alternatives. Their decisions are imaginative, reasoned, and defensible.
In this course, you will be provided with the training and tools necessary to become an inventive, logical strategic thinker. You’ll explore a structured way to approach and dismantle problems, and you’ll learn to clarify problems in terms of objectives and issues, with a view toward optimum outcomes.
Applying the techniques of critical thinking allows you to dismantle complex problems and to understand the inputs and implications of your thought processes. This training allows you to develop positions on issues that are logical and explicable to others. After completing the course, you’ll understand why most decisions are of poor quality and you will be able to impose quality controls on your decisions and the decisions of others.
The course uses a mix of interactive techniques, such as brief presentations by the trainer and the participants, role plays (rehearsed and impromptu), playback of videotaped performances and individual and group feedback.
