Are you a leader in an organization who needs to be able to make quick decisions – often without all of the data you desire or time to analyze the information? No time to go through the typical problem-solving process? TrainSMART’s Adaptive Decision Making workshop will help you identify when an adaptive approach is appropriate, increase your comfort level with making quicker decisions about strategy, improve creativity to generate solutions, and enhance group and individual decisions for better results.
In today’s fast-flowing business environment, leaders usually don’t have the luxury of time when making decisions. Leaders need to be able to quickly size up the situation, identify the most workable and expedient course of action, and then act—often without having all the data or the time to consider every possible option.
Our Adaptive Decision Making workshop helps leaders accelerate the decision-making process, yet still make quality decisions in fast-paced environments with limited time and information. They also learn how to determine when it is appropriate to use this approach and when to slow down the process and apply a more traditional, analytical approach.
