Description

DECISION-MAKING HURDLES, TRAPS AND MINEFIELDS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM (953.1)

Boards exist to make decisions on behalf of a corporation’s owners. At a time when cooperative governance is under scrutiny, boards are looking for ways to demonstrate that their decisions are grounded in fair process, with appropriate objectivity and due diligence. Recognizing and avoiding, the common pitfalls of decision-making can increase the likelihood of the board making a good decision while decreasing the risks of making bad ones. This course delves into the hurdles, traps, minefields and biases that can negatively impact boardroom decision-making and provides strategies for how to counterbalance them.
