Entscheidungsfindung in Zeiten von Unsicherheit

Executive education program in German

Duration 2 Days

Better decision making in a volatile and uncertain environment

Today’s business leaders are increasingly forced to make quick decisions. Good managers will set out with the intention of making a reasoned and well-thought-out judgment call, yet a rational approach to tackling decisions is only one side of the story. Too often, too much emphasis is placed on intuition, and personal biases begin to influence – and fatally flaw – the decision-making process. This tendency should be balanced with objective analysis.

Entscheidungsfindung in Zeiten von Unsicherheit looks at both sides of the equation. Practical experience is merged with up-to-date theoretical concepts. In addition to discussing business case studies with your international peers and ESMT’s distinguished faculty, you will take part in individual and group exercises and tackle common decision-making challenges.

This program is also offered in English language: Decision Making in Times of Uncertainty.
