Decision-making is one of the most integral executive skills contributing to our personal success and the organizations we serve. And yet, it remains one of the most significant risks our clients face on a daily basis, as many of today’s technology professionals have not received the requisite training and mentoring to consistently make effective and well-informed decisions confidently and at the speed their role requires.
The breadth and speed of the information systems supporting our client’s operations continue to grow exponentially along with critical technology risks. As a result, one small decision can have catastrophic implications for an entire organization and has the potential to bring their business to its proverbial knees. Frequently, the root cause of issues that IT risk management professionals discover is not a malfunctioning system or even a cybersecurity threat, but a decision that led to a flawed system maintenance or configuration, which created a processing issue or network vulnerability.
As IT risk management professionals, we are leaders in managing an organization’s technology risk posture. In doing so, it is imperative that we understand what constitutes an effective decision, so that we can both incorporate the fundamentals within our own processes and provide greater value and guidance to our clients.
This program is perfect for leaders and teams:
- Working in fast-paced environments where there is little room for errors, uncertainty, or delays
- Seeking to improve their ability to make confident decisions with speed, so they can achieve consistently positive outcomes
- Who are high-performing contributors but lack the requisite decision-making skills, confidence, and alignment to achieve their true potential
- Struggling to establish consensus, instill confidence in others, and maintain follow-through when making important decisions
The audience will leave with:
- A practical understanding of the fundamentals of effective decision-making taught through real-world use cases
- Confidence in their ability to foster a decisive mindset even during fast-paced, stressful, and anxiety-causing situations
- The ability to make a decision, move forward confidently, and not look back
