You will critically analyse the various factors that influence decision-making in an organisational context. You will examine the various forms of evidence that can inform decision-making as well as ways of validating, interrogating and integrating that evidence to ensure you make sound and intentional decisions. The concept of wicked problems will be introduced to highlight the challenges faced by senior leaders when making decisions. You will also explore the ways to measure the impact and consequences of your decision making.
