Dean's Talk Series

How to deal with uncertain environments

Monday | 27 January 2020 | 5:45PM-7:00PM

Uncertainty creates significant issues for entrepreneurs, managers, and companies. It increases the probability of committing costly errors and it makes planning and resource allocation much more complicated and less cost-effective. Managers cannot control their environments, yet they can modify how they deal with them. They can also deploy different responses to uncertainty at the personal and at the firm level.

HEC Paris in Qatar invites you to a talk by our Dean Dr. Pablo on the topic - How to deal with uncertain environments. In this talk he will review a series of methods and practices that help those who have to deal with uncertainty make better business decisions, and help ultimately understand and deal effectively with uncertainty. This will require challenging the way we make decisions (and being open to understanding what our decision making biases are) and the way organizations operate.

Registration is free, but seats are limited so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
