Decision making

Management development seminar.
Problem analysis and effective decision-making.

Introduction:

Correct and comprehensive analysis is a must for any manager. And often his decisions have to be precise and swift. Along with the capacity to motivate and organize people, the ability to analyze problems end decide on the best course of action represents a key attribute of the good manager. If this ability is well developed, the organization grows. If it is lacking, it translates into organizational ineffectiveness and loss of revenues.

Most managers have of course some methods of decision-making and analysis. Be it their own "ad hoc" application of common sense or the result of some specialized training in the field, all use one or the other. Common sense is often sufficient, but at times the problems are too complex for its application. And many decision-making tools, excellent for computer specialists, are often too cumbersome and time consuming for practical daily use. This seminar attends to this need of having a simple, yet comprehensive method.
