Every decision you make on the job should align and support the strategy, vision, and values of your organization. However, strategic decision-making is often complicated by a lack of information, competing priorities, and unconscious biases.
Given that you will never be entirely free of these complications, you must learn to navigate them if you are to make informed decisions with confidence. In Strategic Decision-Making, you will learn exactly that.
Through case studies, interactive group activities, and a simulation, the program is designed to give you every opportunity to practice the skills and techniques, and apply the tools you've been taught in a risk-free and supportive environment, before returning to the real world.
Who Should Attend
This program is suitable for mid to senior-level leaders who want to develop their ability to confidently and strategically make decisions.
What To Expect
Strategic Decision-Making is made up of highly interactive sessions led by a facilitator that encourages you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, engage in skill-building activities, and receive constructive feedback.

Make decisions that are aligned with the corporate strategy, vision, and values
Assess a situation, identify the options, and critically analyze the consequences to mitigate risk
Recognize when a decision requires your intuition vs. analysis and evidence
Discern when the right time is to involve stakeholders and team members

Reviews From Your Peers
"The time distribution as well as the use of large and small groups was really balanced and worked very well. The small group exercises were definitely a highlight, enabling us to explore the things we had discussed in the larger group, and to try out new methods for group decision making.”
"This program opened my mind to the multiple moral and business values that influence strategy every day. By harnessing that power and consciously operating in that value frame, we can guide and align decisions throughout the organization."
“This program teaches practical skills that can be applied immediately in one's everyday job. Learning not only from top-notch educators, but also with peers from various backgrounds, enhances the experience.”
