Problem Solving and Decision Making - Live Online

Date:
Jun 25 - 27, 2020
Application Deadline:
Jun 15, 2020
Venue:
Live Virtual



In today’s uncertain and fast-paced corporate setting, managers increasingly face situations that require critical decision making in an atmosphere of time pressure. Breaking down a problem and assessing the outcomes of different options is neither simple nor straight forward. High-quality decisions, best suited to the hostile environment, are essential for strong business performance, but only a few people get the training they need to make good decisions consistently, with clarity and confidence. 

Using a unique blend of case studies, role-plays and experiential exercises, the 3-day online programme provides an unparalleled opportunity to acquire skills and techniques essential for making high-quality decisions and solving problems effectively. Participants will build competences by learning how to work on the right problem, develop and structure objectives, understand the consequences, and make appropriate tradeoffs using several problem solving and decision making approaches and tools.

LIVE VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR EXECUTIVES
The 3-day experiential programme is intelligently adapted to live virtual format imparting a brilliant mix of theoretical concepts, insights from practice, constructive tools and techniques in a highly interactive and engaged e-learning environment.

The participants get direct access to LUMS faculty and engage with peers through interactive class discussions, simulations and group project work that helps reinforce learning and networking among the group.

 

During the online programme, the participants will develop an understanding of; 

  • Essentials of rational decision making
  • Decision analysis procedures in resolving problems
  • Analytical frameworks for framing problems and weighing alternatives
  • Breaking down complex decisions into manageable parts and analysing possible alternatives for making rational trade-offs
  • Dynamics of group decision making
  • Leading the decision-making process, building collaboration with multiple stakeholders
  • How moral principles and ethical considerations impact decision making

 

The programme is aimed at middle level managers with responsibilities for decision making and problem solving.
