In this program, you will learn how to increase the quality of your decision-making and those of your team, even in volatile, uncertain, complex and uncertain environments, as you work through engaging case studies and current corporate examples, to understand how to apply this knowledge in the 'real world'.
Dr. Pearson illustrates these concepts through captivating stories that use real-world events and history. Strategic outcomes are dependent on two levers: leadership skills and the ability to manage uncertainty. This program focuses on developing your decision-making skills while managing uncertainty. Remember it is not about your ability to predict, it's about your ability to manage the uncertainties!
