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?

This engaging 90 minute session will immerse participants in the mindsets, frameworks, and platforms of decision science and behavioral economics.
