The science of decision making

How diverse people with incomplete information can make difficult decisions under pressure

 The Science of Decision Making is a program to transform your good decision-makers into great ones. Informed by the latest in decision making science it provides the knowledge, practical tools and easy to follow processes to enable great decision-making in your organisation.
The Science of Decision Making, Simon Waller Live

But don't we already know how
to make decisions?

In both our personal and professional lives, we make countless decisions each and every day. But leaders now face a number of emerging challenges that make great decisions harder to make.
Some of these might sound familiar

what's the impact of this?

More than just a source of frustration, these issues have a massive impact on your organisations performance. At best, bad decisions are a waste of precious financial and human resources; at worst, they can undermine an organisation’s viability and create long-term social and environmental damage.

how are great decisions
different from good ones?

Many of the important decisions that get made in organisations are singular decisions. Singular decisions (such as awarding a large contract to a supplier) only happen once, and once the decision is made, we can never know the outcome of choosing an alternate option. What this means is the calibre of decision-making in an organisation isn’t defined by outcomes, it’s defined by the integrity of the decision-making approach.

Great decision-making, just like great science, is focused on quality and consistency of the process. The process needs to define a clear objective the decision aims to achieve, a methodology for identifying the right options to consider and transparency as to how the options are compared and the decision arrived at. In addition a great process will provide a constructive environment for diverse people to share and challenge each others ideas.

These are the principles at the heart of the Science of Decision-Making program.
