Who will benefit from this decision making development program?
Both the organisation and people stand to benefit. All leaders, managers and supervisors make decisions every day – sometimes all day – and they will benefit from stronger processes for and greater confidence in their own decisions. Organisation performance can only improve if the quality of decision making – and post-decision satisfaction – improves and those involved in governance of the organisation will have greater peace of mind in terms of quality and consistency in organisational decision making.
In view of the value of consistency, this development program would be important at all levels in the organisation. If it is considered as an induction or developmental opportunity for new or newly promoted managers and supervisors, talk to Deltapoint about a program for your senior managers first.
Objectives of decision making program
At the end of the program, your delegates will be able to choose from and utilize a range of decision making tools and processes. They will understand and be able to use the psychology of decision making and know and implement the difference between deferral and procrastination. They will have assessed the impact of ambiguity and uncertainty in their particular decision making challenges and have developed strategies and indicators to help them deal with different levels of uncertainty. Your delegates will have further developed their skills in critical thinking and in communication.

The extra mile
Our aim is to combine sound research and practical experience with application in your organisation to ensure that the learning is transferred to real situations and used by the participants. Our facilitators will follow up with your delegates at agreed times after particular sessions to support, encourage and measure their skill development and application.
Decision-making Program Description
Many factors get in the way of good, vigilant decision making. This decision-making program by Deltapoint facilitates discussion of the impact of these factors as well as providing sound frameworks, models and templates that will assist participants in developing their own rational and reliable processes.
Each part of the program includes private or self-assessment of the participant’s progress to help them make it their own development program – to be reviewed with the facilitator or with the group if they wish. It is a very personal journey and is treated with all the care such a program deserves. The program is facilitated by a practicing psychologist, assuring total confidentiality and a professional approach.
