Decision Making and the Role of Agility

Every organization, whether for-profit or not-for-profit, whether publicly traded or privately held, whether large or small, must balance the need for positive short-term results and positive long-term results. Often mid-level and senior-level managers must excel in both areas.  This session explores best practices in achieving positive strategic results.  Embedded in the session are strategic decision-making behaviors, predicting versus managing the uncertainty of the future, and building adaptability into longer-term strategic initiatives.  The session is highly interactive and builds on current case studies within banking and outside the industry.
