"Information is essential to making intelligent decisions, but more often than not, it overwhelms us in today’s data-rich environment. We’ll equip you with a systematic framework to make smarter decisions under uncertainty."
–  The program’s Faculty Director Oded Netzer, Associate Professor of Business at Columbia Business School

Hear about the program from faculty co-directors Oded Netzer, Paul Magnone, and Christopher Frank.

On any given workday, business leaders are faced with an ongoing and billowing stream of data and information. Every day, they and their team are required to make hundreds to thousands of business decisions.

Often these decisions are made based on previous experiences, "business as usual," or staying in your comfort zone instead of synthesizing new and existing data and insights. The challenge then is: How can executives decipher the meaningful information from the clutter? How can they ensure that they make an impact for their business against the flush of information washing over them? How can they become catalysts of change?

The popular answer often is to improve the analytical skills and tools of your team. But the true challenge is for executives to manage their team in an increasingly analytical business environment and to improve their ability to quickly extract, compile, and synthesize pieces of imperfect information to make smarter decisions.

In Quantitative Intuition: Making Smarter Decisions with Imperfect Information, participants learn how to make bold decisions with incomplete information via precision questioning and business acumen driven by pattern recognition.

This quantitative intuition™ framework – developed exclusively by the faculty directors of this program – teaches participants how to develop a parallel view of the issues that matter rather than just a logical sequence of thoughts to evaluate the situation as a whole. You will walk away from the program with the competencies to help you make smarter, data-driven decisions under uncertainty.
