The decisions we make in our lives, however big or small, can cause a ripple effect. But in a global pandemic, even the simplest of decisions are tidal waves that could literally mean the difference between life and death, survival or decline.
Crisis situations are marked by time pressure, ambiguity, vague goals, and organisational constraints. These conditions are inconsistent with deliberate, analytical decision making. Yet we have learned how people actually handle these challenges and several techniques have been developed to prepare decision-makers to be more successful.
How will a deeper understanding of cognition influence and inform our decision-making practices in organisations during times of uncertainty and crisis? And how do we be sure that everyone, everywhere, harnesses the incommensurable power of their decisions, their own tidal waves, to help protect lives, and rebuild a new (and hopefully better) normality.
Join Alicia Juarrero, Gary Klein and Joao Da Silva in conversation with Dave Snowden and Sonja Blignaut for a 90-minute discussion on “Decision-Making in Crisis”
