Loading Information

Formulate and implement decision-making tools through experiential learning to enhance strategic dynamic processes and productivity whilst working remotely.

Successful business continuity is enabled by impactful decisions. Although business leaders and knowledge workers are normally well equipped with formulating and executing decisions in the workplace, only a few dedicate time to develop interpersonal skills optimal for decision-making remotely. This programme is an interactive learning experience and will provide you with “real-world environments” by placing participants in a team-based setting where they will run their business and make decision involving leadership, strategy, customer and employee challenges.
