Smart decisions in government and business

30 January - 1 February 2023 | Executive seminar

The ability to make effective decisions, to design comprehensible decision processes and to understand and manage uncertainty and risk is crucial for managers of all sectors.

This course covers the most important decision areas for managers in the private and public sectors: Deciding on a future strategy for their organisation; allocating scarce resources in different (business) units or policy areas; making trade-offs between financial, economic, ecological and social objectives; transparently selecting contractors and partners; considering health or environmental risks.

Participants learn how to use decision and risk analysis to support such decisions and build up their decision-making capability. The course enables participants to establish strategic priorities and to deal with conflicting objectives. They learn about frameworks for structuring complex decisions, involving stakeholders and managing risk effectively, and they gain hands-on experience with relevant tools to aid resource allocation and option evaluation.

This seminar is offered in the open enrolment programme and as part of the Executive MPA programme and can be taken as part of the ETGN certificate programme.
