Effective Decision Making


Decision making and problem solving define how we perform in business but research shows that most of us are poor at using data and probabilities to deal effectively with unfamiliar situations. This workshop will explore common pitfalls and examine how simple techniques and the growing use of machine intelligence will help us make better decisions and communicate them persuasively.
