Decision Quality: Make the Right Choice Every Time

Smart, timely decision-making and all that goes into it—collaboration, creativity, framing, alternatives, information, analytics—is a discipline that can be learned and applied for far-reaching benefits.

Texas Executive Education, offers world-class education and leadership development to companies and individuals through custom programs and open enrollment classes.

This 2-day course introduces the cornerstones of making better decisions:

Decision Quality

The concept that defines what we mean by a good decision.

The Dialogue Decision Process (DDP)

Is an efficient, collaborative approach to organizationally and analytically complex decisions.

Decision Analysis

The quantitative tools and concepts that identify the best choice in an uncertain, complex, and dynamic business environment.

In more than 20 years of delivering this course, we have found consistent success using a blend of presentations, group discussions, and “learning by doing.” Participants work in teams, coaching by an experienced decision consultant, on a simulated complex decision.

Who Should Attend

Decision makers, decision team leaders, and those who provide information to support strategic decision making will find this program to be a good introduction to the benefits of this approach in their organization, how it works, and their role in the process. Discounts are available for corporate teams. Contact the registrar for specifics.
