Improving Group Decision Making

Managing Groups and Stakeholders

Whatever your role or organization, most professionals must make a decision “now”—followed by another decision “now,” followed by yet another. It is also likely that those professionals need to collaborate with a wide array of people in order to get this decision right.

But these very challenges can provide unprecedented opportunity and strategic advantage—if leaders can embrace the responsibility for making good, fast, frequent group decisions, and if they can do so better than their competitors.

This course helps teams to:

  • Understand why a sound decision-making process will yield more consistently favorable outcomes over time
  • Mitigate common pitfalls that impact groups while making decisions
  • Identify and map stakeholders’ roles, power, and position in order to manage them more effectively
