Training Description

In this training you will get to know different methods for decision-making from individual decisions, consensus/ compromise to consensus and negative consensus.

In different exercise sequences we introduce decision tools like the pro-con list, preference matrix, pair comparison, decision trees for first order decisions.

For second order decisions we will work with the Coverdale aims grid and the Coverdale decision tree to decide in complex situations or to communicate these decisions.

In order to move forward in complete uncertainty and to make decisions on sight, we present Effectuation, a method from entrepreneurship research that is particularly successful in open-ended situations.
