Sensible business decisions under uncertainty

Location: Tilburg

Every decision you make affects your life to a greater or lesser extent, both professionally and privately. Making good decisions is therefore an art, but also a science. Do you have the right skills, processes and theoretical knowledge to decide what is good for yourself and your organization, both in the short and long term? How do you deal with the uncertainties associated with decision-making? And how do you deal with the fact that a good decision can unexpectedly have a bad outcome?

When you have to make important decisions in uncertain circumstances, it is very important to work in a well-founded and structured way. During this program you will learn how to determine the quality of a decision, which approach suits certain complexities and how to manage risks and uncertainties. In this way, you can determine the quality of decisions in advance, instead of analyzing them afterwards. In a dynamic, challenging one-on-one session with an expert from the faculty, you will also go into individual depths. After completing this program, you will be optimally equipped to use and apply a sound decision-making process on the basis of a scientific theoretical framework.
