Decision Making Under Stress

Managing and Responding to Uncertainty

In an era of technology and information systems, it is more important than ever to preserve and develop the unique abilities of the human mind.  The process of decision-making, when required to be implemented quickly and without adequate information, is a process that cannot be delegated to a machine.  In a dynamic and ever-changing environment, there is a need to identify and respond with immediacy to both opportunities and risks.  Emergent situations require a different approach, different tools, and a different language than that of routine.

This program was created to narrow the gap between routine and emergent.  It was created for executives, commanders, team leaders, and staff members who are working in dynamic, ever-changing environments that can potentially shift from the ordinary to the unexpected.

The seminar was developed as a direct result of long operational experience in both military and civilian capacities by the team leaders, and reflects the belief that individuals can be taught to enhance their efficiency in decision-making through knowledge, training, and practice.
