Come see Bob Frisch speak on decision-making at the CIO Forum & Executive IT Summit in Raleigh, NC on November 28, 2012.
Teams can be very effective at a number of tasks – generating alternatives, debating pros and cons, discussing the relative merits of different courses of action. But, for the most part, management teams fall short at one of the most common tasks they’re asked to perform – smoothly making decisions as a group.
In this provocative and useful talk, Bob Frisch will present some of the groundbreaking findings that led to two of his landmark Harvard Business Review articles, as well as his recent book, Who’s In the Room. How Great Leaders Structure and Manage the Teams Around Them.
Attendees will leave with an understanding that many of the issues management teams face aren’t psychological, but are the result of breakdowns in structure and process. They will have new insights into the role of teams in decision making as well practical, easily implemented solutions to increase the effectiveness of the teams they participate in and the teams they lead.
