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.

Organisations make many decisions every day. Each of these decisions can incur huge costs if they are made without the proper data, business knowledge, analysis tools, or deployment strategies.
While some decisions do require institutional knowledge, others are much more data-driven and repeatable – those are ripe to be automated. Automation is a key part of making "decisions at scale."
Trevor Jones, Founder and CEO of Thorogood, kicks off the event with a look at the year ahead for the BI & Analytics market. He highlights the opportunity to drive better organizational performance through data-driven decision making enabled by today's leading business intelligence and analytics tools.
This presentation was recorded live at Thorogood's Business Intelligence & Analytics Update seminar in London on 3 March 2015.

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.
With ever-increasing amounts of data available, making key strategic decisions based on that data is both a massive opportunity and substantial challenge.
In this webinar, you'll learn some of the cutting-edge ways to process that data and turn it into clear, accurate, real-time, and actionable metrics for decision-makers.
More specifically, we'll discuss some of the methods and technologies (in the Python data ecosystem) that allow for fast extraction, deep analysis, and beautiful presentation of business data.
