Stepping into a leadership role means addressing pivotal decisions while contending with an ever-expanding range of considerations, and managing a quickly shifting landscape.
This 6-week program will prepare executives to provide structure and clarity to uncertain situations, incorporate a broad range of perspectives and inputs to surface previously undiscovered options, evaluate those options in a systematic and data-driven way, assess potential risks, and balance risks and rewards to generate high-return decisions for their business.
