Making Successful Decisions through the Strategy, Law & Ethics Model
Learn how to make effective decisions using the strategy, law and ethics model
Effective decision making is based on the three key pillars of strategy, law, and ethics. This practical, framework-based course from the University of Michigan will show you how to combine these three pillars and ultimately make successful business, personal and leadership decisions.
Discover how the three elements of strategy, law and ethics can be combined as a decision making model
You’ll start the course with an example of a leadership decision; ex-president Barack Obama’s strategic decision to kill Osama Bin Laden, the founder of the terrorist organisation Al Qaeda.
Using a global perspective, you’ll then be shown how the three elements of strategy, law and ethics can be combined and used to prevent a tragedy.
Understand how to make successful business decisions through the model
The rest of the eight-week course will focus on showing you how to make successful business decisions through the strategy, law and ethics model. This concerns creating value (strategy) and managing risk (law) in an effective manner (ethics).
