Strategy, Advanced Thinking and Decision Making

UWA Room

A workshop for ALL Exploration and Mining Geoscientists

Technology in the 21st Century is generating huge volumes of data, which we have to process, analyse and draw conclusions from. This data is the basis of the many decisions we have to make routinely, on a day-to-day basis. But which thinking approaches help you to make the best decisions?

  • Should you make a quick intuitive decision or a slow rational decision?
  • How much evidence or information should you review before making a choice?
  • When should you delegate decision making?
  • And what about accountability?
  • Can you (or should you) use AI or machine learning to assist with decision making?

A defining skill for any executive is good decision making. It is an essential for management and leadership of every organisation. Making, sustaining, rejecting and changing decisions all come with inherent risks to both the organisation – and the reputation of the executive. But according to a global survey, conducted by McKinsey & Co. in 2019, only 20% of respondents said their organisations excel at decision making.

Moreover, there was no correlation between prolonged thorough decision-making processes and winning outcomes.  Winning leaders and their teams make good decisions fast, then execute plans rapidly…….But how?
