What is OLM? And what’s the big deal?

Here’s something that you can relate to. On a daily basis, you’re required to take decisions for the organisation, that could have dire consequences if not done right.  Needless to mention, these decisions have to be made under immense time-pressure, with incomplete information, and with uncertain consequences. How can you be at your efficient best during these instances? How can you ensure your decisions will have a positive impact? This is where OLM could play a great role in planning, coordinating, and executing actions within the available time frame.

OLM helps you in creating a:

  • reliable, efficient information gathering and processing
  • a systematic, simple procedure for situational analysis and decision-making (form-based, that’s unlikely to go wrong)
  • a well-prepared staff to manage crises
  • … and more that you’ll uncover during the workshop!


What the workshop entails

  • Theory and Methodology: Fundamentals of Decision-Making (e.g. incomplete information, complexity, uncertainty, false familiarity, cognitive inertia, bounded rationality, illusion of control, etc.)
  • Introduction to Organizational Leadership Methodology (OLM)
  • Walk-Through of OLM Methodology – Case Study
  • Focus on process and content, including management exercises and group work – Get to experience your own leadership approach through an interactive case study.

Participants will receive a certification from the ZHAW School of Management and Law, Switzerland.
