As leaders of projects and teams, we regularly face choices and decisions that have downstream consequences. Do you want to help your PMO team members make better choices when it comes to decisions on their projects? Do you want to be able to make better decisions in your personal or professional life? Or are you simply curious about how and why people make certain choices?
In this highly interactive session, Andy Kaufman, PMP shares why the familiar pros-and-cons approach seems to make sense—but is profoundly flawed. He discusses how our biases influence the options we consider and the choices we make, and how we can fight those biases. Andy shares examples of how team leaders can influence team decisions in positive and negative ways. Is our problem with decisions that we are overconfident? Maybe—and maybe not! Andy will show how overconfidence is overrated as an explanation for poor decisions. You and your PMO have important decisions that need to be made. No technique can guarantee great decisions every time, but you will leave this session with practical ideas and tools to make better choices for you, your team, and your projects.
