Decision Making for Medical Leaders


Leaders make decisions every day, but the key is doing it more effectively to reach the best outcome.

This two-day workshop will demonstrate how leaders and managers can make decisions well, that support their intuitive judgements with sound analysis. Participants will learn, and then know how, to structure decision situations, balance risk with return, and deal with complexities in organisational decision making, such as sources of uncertainty and multiple conflicting dimensions of value.

Through real case studies, participants will understand how to effectively ‘cut through’ decision complexities, using powerful ‘decision tree’ techniques, and a number of related enhancements. One of the key outcomes from this two-day workshop is that leaders/ managers will become more capable of conducting what is perhaps the most important of all their functional tasks: making their decisions well, to effect great results.
