WEBINAR Tutorial by Bijan Elahi: Risk-Based Decision Making During COVID-19 Crisis



Most of our decisions are made with incomplete information, which leads to uncertainty and anxiety about the outcomes. Risk-based decision making is a rational, explainable and defensible way of making decisions. The knowledge you will gain is applicable to all areas of work and life.

In this webinar presented by PPI’s Medical Device and Risk Management expert, Bijan Elahi, you can expect to leave with an understanding of risk and how to avoid cognitive traps that lead to erroneous decisions. You will learn how to characterize your decisions based on risk and make intelligent trade-offs that lead to confident, explainable and defensible decisions. In this webinar, you will deepen your learning by applying the presented techniques to a current problem: Covid-19 and the critical decisions that our policy makers face.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What is risk?
  • Why humans are inherently terrible at-risk assessment
  • How our brains perceive and process risk
  • What factors have the greatest impact on risk perception?
  • How to incorporate risk in your decision-making
  • Risk-characterization of your decisions
  • Establishing risk acceptance boundaries
  • Risk/benefit analysis
  • Example of risk-based decision-making applied to Covid-19
