Decision Making Workshop

We'll help your team make better-aligned, better-informed decisions while avoiding analysis paralysis.

Study after study has shown that the most effective organizations make clear, well-informed decisions quickly and are able to put those decisions into action with the minimum of fuss.

Conversely, when people talk about some of the things they find most persistently frustrating at work, slow and inscrutable decision-making is often top of the list.

The knowledge and techniques needed to create effective, professional group decision-making are not intuitively obvious given the decision tools we use in our personal lives. This is why so many teams struggle with analysis paralysis.

That's why we designed this workshop. We kept encountering groups of hard-working, friendly, positive people who nonetheless felt stuck in the mud when trying to reach an important decision together. We were determined to unlock those groups.

In this workshop, you will...

  • Learn about the anatomy of a decision and ground that learning through deconstruction of key decisions from your own experience
  • Ramp-up your facilitation skills to make sure you can help to foster an inclusive, positive discussion when decisions need to be made
  • Explore models for crystallizing a shared understanding of a situation
  • Consider the role of both logical fallacies and cognitive biases in group decision making
  • Understand the use of playbooks in codifying decision-affecting principles
  • Learn about and practice using two key models (RACI and RAPID) for driving ownership and speed in decision-making scenarios.
  • Apply all of the tools and concepts learned to a real challenge and create a game-plan for driving the decision-making involved

The team was going round in circles on a number of decisions, constantly revisiting the same conversations and just never getting anywhere. It was slowing down our ability to deliver features on time so we took this workshop with PeopleStorming. It really helped the team to understand the different options for making key decisions and showed us how to create a more inclusive decision making environment. The workshop itself was well thought out and really informative. Definitely worth the investment.
