Decision Quality for Leaders

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

It was excellent – both the content and the presentation/teaching.  You informed, engaged and inspired in equal measure.

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 senior leaders in health and care.

This 2-day 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.

Sessions will be:

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