Strengthen the bridge between decision makers and evidence using Decision Intelligence

  • Do you make or support complex decisions?
  • Do you want to maximize the investment in your data, analytics, knowledge management, and/or ML/AI to lead to better outcomes?
  • Would you like to drive your career success by learning Decision Intelligence: the discipline that helps you answer the question: “If I take this action, in this context, what will be the outcome?”

The Getting Started with Decision Intelligence course gives you a “DI practice in a box”. A step-by-step, hands-on method that has been proven in hundreds of organizations worldwide.

Eight-week course starts as soon as minimum student count have registered, at a date and time to be agreed to between all students, to accommodate your schedule.

By 2023, more than 33% of large organizations will have analysts practicing decision intelligence

“Before taking this course, my analytics team wasn’t giving me data in the form that I needed to make good decisions. I would pore over their charts and graphs, and slice and dice the data in their tools, but when it came down to actually making a decision, it was often a matter of politics more than anything else. Now I know how to talk to them: in terms of outcomes I wish to achieve and actions I have to choose.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Structure decision conversations around desired outcomes (financial and / or non-financial) and actions to achieve them.
  • Use state-of-the-art collaborative tools to map AI, knowledge, data, and more into decisions.
  • Find simplicity and order amongst the confusion of new data, tools, and complex decisions.
  • Provide value to your data management projects by guiding them towards the 10% of data that has 90% of the value.
  • Identify integrations between organizational silos.
  • Earn greater trust and credibility for your team.

Eight-week course starts as soon as minimum student count have registered, at a date and time to be agree to between all students.


What is Decision Intelligence?

Decision intelligence is the discipline of turning information into better actions at any scale.

Dr. Cassie Kozyrkov, former Chief Decision Scientist, Google Cloud

Vint Cerf, “Father of the Internet”

In praise of Link: How Decision Intelligence Connects Data, Actions, and Outcomes, for a Better World, Cerf writes: [Decision Intelligence] is an exercise in abstraction, causality, and modeling. It is about discovering and making visible interdependencies in complex systems. [Pratt] distills what she has learned in pithy insights. “
