CommonSensical Decision Making Using Facts, Data & Prioritization Learning Objectives / Key Benefits: - Understand Fact Based Decision Making - Learn 5 Best Prioritization Techniques - Learn How To Avoid Common Mistakes Do you second guess your decision or avoid making them because you fear to make the wrong choice? This session will help you be more confident and learn how to make decisions faster with no regrets. Did you know that there are six barriers to decision making? No wonder we fall into analysis paralysis. This session will go into each barrier and how to overcome it using the six factors that make decision making easy. Fact-based decision making is also known as evidence-based decision making. As product owners, project managers, and business analysts we are required to make many decisions. We can rely on hard data or facts, soft data, assumptions, similar experience, and even gut feelings or hunches. Clearly not all of these are equal. Fact-based decision making can help you learn how to recognize facts over feelings and how to spot and avoid bias. You will also learn the top 5 prioritization techniques that you can use to help others make better and faster decisions. Decision making and prioritization can help you better manage your backlog or project scope. It can help you organize your workload. It can even help you manage and avoid scope creep.
