Wise judgment and effective decision-making have always been essential skills for leaders across all professional settings. Today, leaders have access to mountains of data from endless sources. The question is, how can they leverage this abundance of information to make smarter decisions?

Leadership Decision Making (Online) features hands-on learning experiences that help leaders like you improve decision analysis and leadership effectiveness. During this ten-day intensive online program, you'll discover how to recognize biases in judgment that affect even the most intelligent individuals and to incorporate structured decision-making techniques empirically shown to enhance decision making. You'll also receive customized, confidential feedback on your decision-making style from the Harvard Decision Science Laboratory—one of the most popular aspects of the program.

The interactive online curriculum will be conducted through a mix of live faculty-led sessions and asynchronous work, including:

  • Two live faculty-led sessions per day, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET
  • Pre-program readings: Participants will be expected to spend approximately five hours in preparation for the program and approximately three hours working between class sessions.
