This course attempts to help you become a better decision maker. When asked about their ability to make decisions, previous students expresses concerns and several said they lacked self-confidence in making decisions. Others indicated that the process of making decisions may be painful, especially if one has to make an important decision. This may stem from the deliberation process one goes through that may be stressful. Yet others added that at times they second-guess their decisions and some acknowledged that they suffer from regret when a decision they have made led to an undesired outcome. A few mentioned that having gone through such a process made them indecisive and unclear about how to go about making decisions. The above concerns are described with regard to personal as well as business decisions. Making decisions at work may be easier when one can solicit the help from colleagues but at the same time the consequences may loom even larger when making decisions at work. This course takes a systematic approach to improve your decision-making skills. Requirements include several exercises, knowledge of statistics is required but the course is not about quantitative calculation of alternatives but about the processes underlying the making of decisions.
