Free Webinar
Tuesday June 25, 2013 1:00 PM EDT

Decision-making is arguably the most critical task that a manager must undertake. Bad choices can not only damage an individual’s career, but also have drastic implications for an organization’s bottom line.

Complicating matters is the ever-increasing pace of our business environments. Managers are asked to make bigger decisions under tighter timelines, higher pressure and with fewer errors in judgment.

In this free 60-minute webinar, Queen’s School of Business Professor Salman Mufti will discuss the elements integral to effective managerial decision-making, examining a number of strategies to assist in avoiding common biases and pitfalls.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn how the art and science of effective decision-making could be blended in to a practical process
  • Explore the various strategies and techniques employed by successful managers and executives
  • Discuss how to build a framework for both strategic and tactical decision making

Following the presentation will be time dedicated to Q&A with our speaker, allowing for real-world application of theoretical concepts.
