People in companies typically make hundreds of decisions every day; some of them have long-term implications. But big data and smart technology are changing the process of decision-making. This three-day programme will teach you new ways of thinking to keep your decision-making relevant.
This programme is designed for experienced managers and consultants from organisations of all sizes and from various functional areas including operations, marketing, innovation and human resources, who are seeking to deepen their executive decision-making skills. An evaluation is part of the selection process.
You should comply with the following requirements if you wish to take part in the Rules for Effective Decision-Making programme:
You have a minimum of 5 years of managerial experience
You have budget responsibility and have financial impact in your organisation
You have responsibility in the strategic decision-making process in your organisation.
Your application will be final once we have informed you on the basis of the intake call that your application has been accepted.
The abundance of data and the potentials of AI and technology are immense. But it is humbling to realise that we professionals are often the limiting factor to effective decision making. During this three-day journey our personal experiences and company routines were challenged by scientific insights as well as pragmatic tools.
Mike van Meurs, CFO/COO, Brabant Development Agency
The course gave me valuable insights on a broad scale of aspects that can influence the process of decision-making, as well as (inconsistent) human behaviour and the way data and new technology can be used to validate or influence the process of decision-making.
Vincent de Bruyn, manager fleet services operations, Athlon
The three intense days of lectures, discussions, knowledge-sharing and reflecting were led by two inspiring tutors. We discussed several insights that I will implement in my organisation, particularly relating to prediction modelling and ways to structure inventive thinking. I believe attending Rules for Effective Decision Making has expanded my skill set as a manager and entrepreneur, and that was exactly what I was looking for.
