Managing Organizations: The Analytic Mindset
In the second module, participants break from the silos of conventional analysis and focus on using all available information for decision-making.
Presentations come from many different perspectives, allowing participants to see the nature and practice of analysis as how it can be applied in organizations. Participants explore how different forms of inquiry can clarify and simplify problems, as well as paralysis, where managers over-analyze a problem rather than moving forward to action. In addition, the challenges brought by “big data” and managing information are explored.
Sessions on complexity within different organizational structures help participants gain perspective when analyzing their own business models. In addition, site visits to companies and organizations provide an opportunity to challenge perspectives and examine analytical and decision-making processes in real time.
Between Modules One and Two, participants improve their financial literacy.
