Strategic Decision & Risk Management Certificate

The Right Decision for Success

Successful decision-making processes are not intuitive. In order to make great, or even good, decisions under pressure, you need a structured framework. You must clarify the problem that needs to be solved, explore the available options, understand the impact of your decision, and commit to your choice with confidence.

The Strategic Decision and Risk Management Certificate provides you with the techniques to recognize risks from your stakeholders’ perspectives and nominatively generate better alternatives.
