The Psychology of Judgment and Decision-Making

Course Code: PJD101-WS
In times of extreme VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity), we are expected to make the right decisions. But, how can we know whether we make the right decisions? This course is specifically designed for professionals based in Japan. It covers the fundamental psychology that surrounds our judgment and, ultimately, our decisions and choices, as well as explores the group and organizational dynamics that influence the decision-making process in Japan. We will briefly discuss topics such as intuitive vs. conscious choice, the role of emotions, social pressures, and cognitive biases that misguide our decisions. At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to come up with their revised decision making strategies.
