“Decision Quality – Making Good Outcomes More Likely”
The two-day Decision Quality Conference 2018 is the first of its kind in the vibrant city of London!
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?
Speakers and participants with backgrounds in oil and gas, high tech, pharmaceutical, fast-moving consumer goods, and other industry sectors, as well as policymakers and scientists are invited to the conference.

Speaker: Dr. Mark Seidler, SDG – Düsseldorf
Moderator: Ritske van der Meer, EDPN and SDG – Düsseldorf
We invite professionals who frequently find themselves in various decision support situations in their daily jobs and wonder how to bring value in each of those situations without using all tools, tips and tricks every time all the time.
Our speaker will present a classification of different decision situations driving different approaches. He will introduce Decision Quality and show how this can be effectively applied in different situations without overkill.
We will discuss three different questions:
• What is a decision?
• What are the different types of decisions?
• How to add quality in each situation?
Please join us and share your thoughts about decision making and how to add quality in all sorts of decision situations.
On June 18th, 2014, EDPN hosts another event in its series on professional decision making. This time, the focus is on Portfolio Management, and we will explore it from the decision making angle. As our keynote, we have Michael Menke, flying in from the US for us, to share results from his global Portfolio Management benchmarking work. Michael is also a veteran in the Strategic Decision Making community. To inspire and translate into practice we have two companies presenting their challenges in product and project portfolio management: NXP semiconductors and Philips Healthcare.
