Think Straight to Decide Right: Introduction to Critical Thinking

May 26 2020 16:00 - 17:00 UTC


  • Every day we deal with issues and hope to resolve them correctly, quickly, and cheaply.
  • To do so means we need to be able to sort the immediate and important issues from the less urgent and less critical problems.
  • That means we ought to identify the problem, gather the information and data, explore solutions, select the most likely answer and implement it.
  • But our analysis, evaluation, and decision process can be distorted by various cognitive biases.
  • In this session, you will learn how to prioritize issues and problems, resolve an issue or solve a problem logically and mitigate possible biases that sometimes make it hard to think straight.

3 Learning Objectives

  • Identify and prioritize the most urgent and critical issues and problems
