Emerging Best Practice in the Public Sector

Free Lunchtime Conversation


'Making great decisions in risk averse, difficult organisational environments'
Wednesday 25th September 2019




Presenter: Dr Richard Barber 

When we make decisions we often need to deal with with diverse views and interests and with policies, rules and processes that limit options and slow us down. Risk aversion, silos of thinking and behaviour and hidden biases conspire to hold us back.


In a previous RiskIQ lunchtime session, we discussed a process for making decisions when facing complex situations and challenges. In this session we will start from that process, to see how we can use it to make great decisions even when facing the constraints noted above.


Bring and share your own ideas and experience of decision-making and how to deal with the constraints of red tape and risk aversion. How can we move faster, better despite the apparent roadblocks?
