This online course focuses on those critical thinking, decision-making, and cognitive skills vital to effective project management.

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  1. Explain how critical thinking can be used to enhance decision making
  2. Describe the steps that teams and individuals use to make effective decisions
  3. Employ the Davenport-Kim three-stage model of decision making
  4. Recognize the role that uncertainty and risk play in the decision-making process
  5. Discuss how the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator helps in understanding decision-making approaches
