    • Who decided that?!?  Insight to Board Decision Making Who decided that?!? Insight to Board Decision Making John Deffenbaugh, Director, Frontline Recorded: Jul 1 2015 10:00 am UTC 63 mins
    • It is often through hindsight that the value of a Board decision is judged. Years, even months after, both those affected by a decision and those who took it will sometimes ask, “Who decided that?”

      There are many factors that play into a good Board decision, including the quality of Board paper, the range of options, the quality of debate, effective challenge, corporate perspective, understanding of the context, and the ability of the Chair to effectively steer discussion and move to a decision. Boards make many fewer decisions than they think they do. In observing a Board meeting, held over 7 hours with over 650 pages of papers, there was not one paper for decision.

      This Webinar will delve into decision making as one of the key roles of the Board. We’ll look at the four levels of Board engagement in decision making: rubber stamping, probing and questioning, setting strategic direction, and shadowing. For each level we’ll explore what it means for the Board and the organisation it directs. We’ll also consider a range of related factors that influence decision making:

      • Best practice in Board papers
      • Strategic versus operational focus
      • The roles of board members
      • Corporate versus functional perspective

      We’ll use a range of models to explore Board decision making, and will draw on experience from across the NHS and beyond.

      John Deffenbaugh, a director of Frontline and an NHS non-executive director, will host this Webinar.

    • Effective Decision Making Effective Decision Making Dr. Stephanie A. Parson Recorded: Sep 22 2010 5:00 pm UTC 31 mins
    • Decision making is an essential and very important skill in the business tool kit of professionals in the 21st century. This cutting edge seminar focuses on the thinking and behavioral skills that are required to conduct an accurate decision making process in the business world.
      It is important to understand that decision making has two distinctive parts; one is an all encompassing, methodical and analytical process, which requires specific steps and models to minimize the margin of error in a pressured and demanding environment. The training in this part focuses on being able to be at the point, responsive rather than reactive, making decisions in a rational, responsible manner, without bias or pre-conceived ideas that cloud judgment. The other part includes the emotional intelligence element in decision making that takes into account the human aspect, long-term consideration and the understanding of emotions as a powerful tool in decision making.
