The discussion here is a nicely collected and presented artifacts one should learn, practice if willing to learn effective decision making. I certainly find this helpful.
Some terminologies he is using are not commonly used, so for a beginner it should be a little bit more understandable.
the final exam its superb hard, but key to answer re-attend again the whole course and don't waste time figuring out what you answer wrongly
The content is interesting, relevant and has direct application on any role. Plus is very well presented and structured
Rarely is a course for everyone: C-levels, mid managers, consultants and employees, students,... And rarely is such course based in scientific findings and confirmed in business.
I appreciated the scoping to mid-level managers making two mid-level decisions/week, but would also have appreciated some examples of decisions over examples like which car to buy.
Erik did an AMAZING job highlighting the process to address and recommendations to address learned weakness. Extremely excellent material!
This course provides a lot of helpful information how how to best make decisions at work. Definitely recommend the course.
The course is very insightful with deep behavioral research and the data to backup the statistics. I found it extremely helpful for my career development.
Amazing insides about how the brain works and stay on our way to make better decisions and how we can overcome it.
As a product manager, the content in this course was extremely relevant, and the solutions provided were helpful, thoughtful, and well-explained.
Gave me great insight into the unspoken rationale of making the decision and gave me some idea of how to overcome some of the complexities that are often fuelled by human emotion.
