LEA 420 - Strategic Decision Making

Description: Stop making poor decisions! How we typically make strategic decisions is ineffective. They are often based on inaccurate information, can be absurdly biased, and can include an emotional component that causes us to go down a rabbit hole that has no end in sight. As the leader, we shouldn't spend too much time rearranging deck chairs, but rather, focus and adjust our mirror, look at the dashboard and circumvent the iceberg that lies ahead. This course examines the 5 W's and H of strategic decision making and Porter's Five Forces for industry analysis. Students will explore the primary effects of positive leadership and tying it directly to better strategic decision making and successful workplaces. Letter grade only.
