Briefing: Contemporary decision-making

Technology provides businesses with a plethora of opportunity. Most prevalent perhaps is the speed in which we can communicate, understand and react to new things at the click of a button. Without the invention of email, and other technologies, it would feel like we are all standing still.

Data being created every day now needs to be understood, and using software that is available to make sense of this is now essential. Modern day decision-making can be faster than ever before. This has both positives and negatives which are discussed in this briefing, including comment from:

  • Ed Fuller, former President & MD of Marriott International on how he managed the decisions he had to make.
  • David Scowsill, CEO of the WTTC, on the velocity of new mobile and social technologies
  • Sir Nigel Knowles, co-Global CEO of DLA Piper on the caution to be taken when making decisions quickly.
  • And Prof. Ian Goldin, of Oxford University on digesting the instantaneous online platforms.
