Decision Quality for Leaders – 1 day workshop

One day course:

Decision Quality for Leaders

Decision quality is a fundamental, but neglected, route to improvement. Advance your practice with this development programme.

Background information

The Strategy Unit, working on behalf of the Midlands Decision Support Network, has devised a development programme to improve decision quality. It is designed for current and aspiring leaders in health and care.

The programme is founded on the view that decision making is utterly fundamental – but that very few leaders, organisations or systems focus specific attention on it. It is designed using insights from a growing literature, alongside research with senior decision makers in the Midlands. It is highly applied and overall feedback has been excellent. Participants will leave the programme with:

– an understanding of what decision quality is,

– how they can improve decision quality in their team, and

– a selection of tools to support quality decision making.

This is a development programme to improve strategic decision making in Midlands’ Integrated Care Systems. It will provide you with cutting-edge thinking, practical tools and analytically-grounded techniques. It will leave you equipped to improve decision making in your organisation and ICS.

The session will be:

  • Applied – participants bring examples and decisions they face
  • Participative – expertise and experience of the room
  • Challenging – plenty of stimulation, push and pull

Your training will be led by: Fraser Battye (Principal Consultant, Strategy Unit)
