Decisions making processes are at the heart of running a business. But for every potential profit, a possible downside risk is attached. There comes the fear of failure with forced choice. The more important a future decision is, the harder it becomes to decide which way to go. Considering the serious consequences of investing in a new product, taking in a partner, hiring more staff or expanding your operation. Analysing data and seeking input can help. Nevertheless, it may also lead to analysis paralysis. That’s why rational deliberation and faster, more intuitive insights should be used. Doing so via a process with defined steps can lead to better outcomes. Interdisciplinary approach might be useful too.

The main goal of the conference is to support a wider discussion about decision making process from interdisciplinary and cross regional perspective. Every participant has a good chance to exchange experience and get an inspiration for further creative research with colleagues from various countries, universities and different business areas.
