    • Business leaders know they need to leverage data, predictive analytics, and decision management technology to automate and improve decision making. But at many organizations the cost of building the necessary models and infrastructure is prohibitive—not to mention incredibly time-consuming.

      Fortunately, analytics-as-a-service and real-time decision management systems (DMS) are emerging as lower-cost, more efficient solutions. In this webinar, experts will explain how businesses can utilize these solutions to vastly improve operational decision-making capabilities and create measurable results around credit risk, fraud, verification, payments, collections, and marketing.

      Watch and learn:

      - How DMS use business rules, predictive models, and optimization to provide a repeatable, proven approach to problem solving
      - Top 5 considerations for selecting a DMS

    • Decision making under pressure
      Decision making under pressure Paul Breed MBCI Recorded: Sep 27 2016 2:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • Business continuity can be a high pressured role at times, with many decisions having to be made under that pressure.

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

    • Modelling ‘smart’ and ‘lazy' thinking to influence decision-making
      Modelling ‘smart’ and ‘lazy' thinking to influence decision-making Dominic Tyer Recorded: Oct 4 2016 2:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • 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.

    • 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.
