Decision Science for Leaders

How do you decide who to hire, when a phase-gate has been achieved, or which project to resource next? Chances are, you rely on intuition... which could otherwise be known as habits, biases, and, group-think. What if you could elevate your decision-making… to decide using information. To decide better?

“Decide Better” is a leadership-oriented session applicable to chief executives, board members, independent directors, and aspiring leaders. “Decide Better” is at the leading edge of decision science emerging in leadership and organizational effectiveness, based on materials presented at Vistage, INFORMS, and the Society of Decision Professionals.

discrete decisions

deciding who to hire; selecting a vendor; planning an event

open-ended decisions

knowing when to "go" or "no go"; managing a phase-gate process

continuous decisions

prioritizing projects; assigning resources; conducting stack-ranking

What will I learn from this session?

  • Learn how to apply structured Decision Science techniques to everyday life… as an employee, entrepreneur, student, or parent!

What insights will I come away with?

  • Core frameworks of Weighted Value and Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) for a decision-maker, facilitator, or domain expert

What tools will be covered?

We will review basic uses cases that Google Sheets can support,
and more advanced use cases that would require Volley or another industry tool.
