Facilitating Risk-Based Decision Making

Virtual Workshop



Making good decisions means understanding both the various types of cognitive biases, and the process around communicating with stakeholders about bias. Risk-taking based on objective value of costs and benefits, instead of perceived value driven by bias, yields better outcomes.

As a risk management professional, you need to incorporate debiasing techniques and recognize how biased perception impacts analysis and judgement. This instructor-led, virtual workshop will explore some of these important skills in addition to communication strategies around managing the influence of bias in risk management.
