Upcoming Webinars:

Negotiations: Closing the Negotiation Quality Gap

February 8, 2017
11-11:30 am CST

Negotiation is a form of multi-party decision making where most of the uncertainty is created by the other parties in the negotiation. Different objectives and points of view provide the opportunity both to create greater value and to allocate that value in a mutually beneficial way. This webinar, featuring Dr. Gaylen Paulson, Associate Dean of Texas Executive Education, addresses how we interact strategically with people in negotiations. It includes discussion on negotiation processes and skills that lead to managerial and strategic influence as well as improved decision quality.

Game Theory and the Psychology of Fairness

March 8, 2017
11-11:30 am CST

What are the best ways to approach decisions when there are multiple decision makers, each with different information, motives, and goals? Game Theory can provide useful insights into the competitive and cooperative kinds of strategic decisions regularly made by businesses today. In addition, as a tool from the behavioral sciences, Game Theory can support negotiations, where different points of view and preferences can provide the opportunity both to create greater value and to allocate that value in a mutually beneficial way.

In this thought-provoking webinar presented by Carl Spetzler, Steve Tani, and Hannah Winter — all partners at SDG and experts in decision-making under conditions of uncertainty and complexity — the powerful perspective of Game Theory is discussed, as well as how human nature violates its rationalistic assumptions.
