Course Name:
Leadership and Decision Making
Course Description:
This one day workshop introduces the concept of using a decision making process in incident command, emergency management and business impact situations. The foundation for the process used has been adapted from concepts from within the Department of Defense, Special Operations Command and combines this process with present day doctrines from the Department of Homeland Security / Federal Emergency Management Agency and best business practices. These concepts are consistent with and are contemporary to the National Incident Management System, the National Response Framework and National Recovery Framework. Additional items that are explored include the basics of leadership, expectation and intent, understanding and evaluating the needs in a rapidly changing environment, tools such as a key decision logging to document choices. All of these ideas culminate in a better understanding and usage of a formal decision making process and having the tools to be better prepared as a lead
