Decision Analysis – Making Fact Based Decisions

 

Decision Analysis is a self-paced program that provides an overview of our five-step process to help you successfully navigate any important decision, big or small. You will learn the key principles that drive fact-based decision making, and how to sidestep biases that creep into decision making, especially in group situations. Decision Analysis helps you:

Clearly identify decision goals and objectives

Separate the true “musts” of a decision from the “wants”

Eliminate unacceptable options without prejudice

Use a fact-based approach to find the best decision option

Present your solutions in a clear and compelling format

 

You’ll learn the Decision Analysis process, see it in action, and get hands on practice. As a bonus, you’ll also receive an unlimited license to download and use our new Decision Analysis templates for on the job application.

This course is ideal for anyone interested in improving their decision making skills, or for teams who desire a common language of decision making to increase the speed and quality of their decisions and decision recommendations.

Situation Analysis – Getting To The Heart Of Complex Problems

Situation Analysis uses powerful critical thinking principles to break down complex issues and problems into manageable pieces, focus on the correct priorities, and create lasting solutions. You will learn the key principles that drive effective problem solving, and how to avoid forces that try to move us away from rational thinking and sound decision making:

Poor understanding of the true situation

Unchecked facts packaged to look authentic

Data manipulated to lead us to predetermined conclusions

Constant rush to judgement about virtually every topic or position

Our own biases, which are often deeply hidden in the way we think

 

Situation Analysis helps you fully understand the bigger picture behind any complex issue or problem through a clear and objective lens. The resulting actions will be based on facts and logic, not opinions. In the course you’ll learn the Situation Analysis process, see it in action, and get hands on practice. As a bonus, you’ll also receive an unlimited license to download and use our new Situation Analysis templates for on the job application.

 

This course is ideal for anyone interested in improving their critical thinking and problem solving skills, and for teams who desire a common language to increase the speed and quality of their individual and group problem solving.

Problem Prevention – Solving Problems Before They Happen

 

What if you could discover a way to never face an unexpected problem again? In this course, you’ll learn the secrets to solving problems before they happen. Problem Prevention is used to forecast potential obstacles and problems that threaten the success of your plans, projects and important daily work. You’ll learn the critical thinking principles of Problem Prevention to discover your (or your team’s) “blind spots”, avoid hidden problems, and execute your work with confidence.

Problem Prevention helps you advocate for preventive and contingent action planning with a clear and fact-based platform. The result? Preventing problems before they occur and putting the odds of success squarely in your favor.

In the course you’ll learn the process, see it in action, and get hands on practice. As a bonus, you’ll also receive an unlimited license to download and use our new Problem Prevention templates for on the job application.

 

This course is ideal for anyone interested in improving their proactive critical thinking skills, or for teams who desire a common language to increase their odds of success in completing important projects and plans.
