Executive Decision Making with Data Science

Executive Decision Making with Data Science

Empower Yourself to Drive Decisions

Program Experience

Business leaders are tasked with making countless decisions every day – some mundane, some momentous. These decisions can have big repercussions, affecting the survival of businesses or even careers. Despite the prevalence of decision making in business, professionals are rarely given clear preparation or guidance on critical thinking or the right process to make rational decisions.

The Executive Decision Making with Data Science program was designed to provide executives with the essential training in fundamental decision-making skills that will empower them to overcome biases, problem-solve, and adopt data-driven decision making. Central to the program are decision-making strategies that leverage data analysis to make informed decisions.

Professor Don Moore guides participants through the fundamentals of critical decision making; evaluating details to distinguish between crucial and trivial information, recognizing our own biases that can affect judgment, and avoiding potential short-term thinking that could cloud long term decision making. Participants will be equipped with effective tools to apply accurate and reliable information to make sound decisions that enable successful business outcomes.
