Business continuity can be a high pressured role at times, with many decisions having to be made under that pressure. It is important to be able to manage it effectively and so ensure the right decision is taken, whatever the circumstances. In this webinar, Paul Breed MCBI presents a decision making model which includes:
Information - (Fact, Assumption, Gaps - urgency)
Threat and Risk Assessment - based on Identity, Capability, Intention
Development of a Working Strategy - that dovetails the Threat and Risk Assessment
Options - ideally from a predetermined tactical menu that reduces time critical decision making
Action - based on the agreed option together with contingencies
Review - constantly review the decision especially when new information comes to light
Traditional models of cognitive behaviour remain meaningful, but they can fail to deliver strong links between ‘smart’, cognitive-based factors of judgement and the decision-making associated with actual behaviour change.
In contrast, behavioural economics accounts for the ‘lazy’ judgments and thoughts that occur at an automatic level, but can over-weight the prevalence of such behaviour.
On October 4 Cello Health Insight, in association with PMGroup, will host a free webinar on applying adaptive and integrated behavioural models to qualitative enquiry.
It will look at how to achieve a better understanding of what drives therapeutic decision-making and how medical marketing, digital and PR initiatives can change future behaviours in favour of achieving target sales.

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.
Risk sources are more often identified and located not only in infrastructural or technological assets and tangible variables, but in Human Factor variables, Mental States and Decision Making. The interaction between Human Factors and tangible aspects of risk, highlights the need to focus closely into Human Factor as one of the main drivers for Risk Management, a "Change Driver" that comes first of all from the need to know how humans perform in challenging environments and in face of risksRead more >
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.
