Decision-Making Strategies (Online)



Full course description

Explore four styles of decision making—autocratic, participatory, democratic, and consensual—for specific situations. Recognize types of ambiguity you'll face to reduce risk and plan for contingencies. Involve stakeholders in the decision-making process, and apply a RACI (responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed) matrix. By applying these major concepts, you'll have the tools to help you make better decisions faster, incur less risk, and gain more support for your decisions.
