Webinar of September 9th 2020 with Erik Elgersma: Decision-Making Under Uncertainty

Swissintell Webinar with Erik Elgersma

The webinar Decision-Making Under Uncertainty: How To Address The Cognitive Biases That Affect Your Strategic Thinking was presented by Erik Elgersma, Founder and Director of Strategic Analysis Services BV and author of a book The Strategic Analysis Cycle.

In volatile times the worst decision is usually the one taken too late. Too often decision-makers can’t wait for all the facts. They must therefore build or strengthen their capability to make decisions under uncertainty.

Unfortunately the human brain is not well-wired for doing so. This webinar will show you how to take better decisions despite the limitations of human reasoning.

The webinar discussed the following topics:

  • Understand the cognitive biases that affect decision-making
  • Avoid falling into bias traps
  • Use structured analytical tools to limit the impact of cognitive limitations on strategic thinking

Members can find the recording in the reserved section.
