Problem Solving and Decision Making

December 19 - 21, 2017

Overview

Effective problem-solving and decision-making is the key to management excellence. Time and again, successful managerial technique has been attributed to the quality of decisions and approaches to problem solving that the management adopts in a dynamic and fluid business environment. Despite its importance, very few managers are groomed in the art and science of making apt decisions, with ease and direction.
