Training course overview

This Coventry Academy training course examines techniques for decision analysis with emphasis on prioritisation and the decision making process to be carried out by Operation, Maintenance and Safety Professionals. Decision-making is the most central human activity, intrinsic in our biology and done both consciously and unconsciously. We need it to survive. Taking a decision is not just a question of selecting the best alternative since there are many traps in decision making, which cause people to be biased and inconsistent. In this Coventry Academy training course, we learn how to set priorities and perform what-if analysis for improving decisions in the fields of operation, maintenance and safety. It is a hands-on experience as we get to use powerful software for decision making which is also user-friendly.
