Great decision-making makes great leaders. But modern life demands more from us than ever. Pinging smartphones, mountains of data and endless sources of distraction bombard us with hundreds of decisions every single day. Digital data has changed the shape of the business landscape, and the face of those who thrive in it.

The question is: how can we take this abundance of data and use it to our advantage as leaders?

For the first time, the University of Warwick is joining with the University of Chicago for a unique collaboration between two of the world's best universities. Designed for leaders – and those poised for future leadership positions – across public, non-profit and corporate sectors, this expert-led course applies the fundamental principles of evidence-based decision-making, blending theory and practice in an impactful two-day programme, delivered from Warwick’s London base in King’s Cross.

Leading researchers will deliver cutting-edge Design Thinking frameworks – used by global tech giants and disruptive start-ups – which put the user at the centre, developing empathy, challenging assumptions and creating solutions that work.

Harness the habits of world-renowned business leaders, with applied techniques to change the way you see and interact with the world – and even those around you. Learn to separate credible from non-credible evidence, distinguish causation from correlation and avoid common pitfalls and biases in decision-making. Prime your problem-solving abilities and think differently, equipping you not just to keep pace with today’s data-driven world, but to thrive in it.
