Course Outcome

Duration: 1 Hour

Students will be able to better manage personal risk in their day to day and professional lives through the application of enhanced decision making which is derived from learning the principles set out in this course. Upon completion, you will better understand the concepts of internal baselining, sense making, meaning making and risk intelligence, while being able to actively apply categorisation to decisions. You’ll also be backed by the understanding of personal biases and heuristics, as well as the context and complexities we commonly face that impact our abilities to make decisions.
