How do you decide who to hire,
if a risky system launch is a 'go',
or which project to fund next?

Chances are, you rely on intuition... which can be heavily influenced by habits, biases, and, groupthink. What if you could elevate your decision-making… to decide using information. To decide better?

Decide Better is an immersive workshop on Decision Science for Executives, Portfolio & Project Managers, Product Development Professionals, and Aspiring Leaders. Developed by entrepreneur & educator Matthew John Brady, this 4 hour interactive session will provide you with strategies, motivations, and techniques via real audience examples. Learn why high-quality decision-making is a competitive differentiator and an ethical imperative.
