WHAT IS EDPN?
The European Decision Professionals Network (EDPN) provides a platform for Decision Professionals in both business and government who aim to promote high quality decision making within their own or their clients’ organisations. EDPN is the first European network with a focus on decision making and the practical applications of Decision Analysis methodologies and the Decision Quality concept. EDPN is an informal network of decision experts, which cooperates with other bodies of professionals, but is independent from them. In addition to its LinkedIn group, the network is now organising its first conference.

The quality of decision making in board room and top management teams are key to the success of your organization. The decisions made determine the direction and development, growth or decay of the organization. Governance more and more therefore is focused on the quality of top teams. Composition, leadership, communication and conflict management all determine this quality. Teams however all develop. Hopefully towards a true top team: with shared mental models resulting in high quality decisions and implementation of these. The ‘soft’ side is really the ‘hard’ part in decision making: how to develop an open and learning climate? How to grow towards a high performing team? How to use conflicts constructively, build trust, prevent group think in the board room?

The two-day conference programme consists of a mix of inspiring presentations and an interactive programme. The conference programme is built on four main themes: • How can we address 'complexity', for example of the business environment? • How can we keep clarity of thought in this world of overwhelming information? • How do we properly take risks and uncertainties into account when making investment or strategic decisions? • What support do executives need for truly effective and efficient decision making?
