Decision Making Programme description

Programme Objectives

To thrive in an unstable and unpredictable environment, companies must build relevance and resilience into their business. Strategic decisions made by leaders are fundamental to achieving this, yet strategic decision-making has never been as challenging as it is today!

The newly created CEDEP programme, “Decision making in unprecedented times” aims at developing the necessary understanding, mindset, behaviour, skills and methodologies to enable leaders to make relevant strategic decisions, for the future success of the organisation.

Pedagogical Objectives

Leaders face the challenge of keeping one eye firmly on the now, while making strategic decisions that build relevance and resilience into the organisation.

During the interactive online programme, participants will have the opportunity to hone their future facing decision making skills by:

  • Obtaining a solid overview of key drivers behind the extraordinary shifts we are facing in the world today, their impact on business, as well as the out of ordinary opportunities and threats that are emerging
  • Having traditional business understanding and norms tested, and alternative ones encouraged (business, industry, company, function, discipline, team, leadership philosophies)
  • Letting go of assumptions and biases, expand the mindset and embrace new mental models to assist relevant information gathering, understanding and prioritisation
  • Stretching the range and types of questions and solutions considered, as well as select relevant decision-making criteria
  • Raise awareness of methodologies, processes and tools that facilitate relevant decision-making, in line with the new realities identified
