How can on-the-ground humanitarian leaders make better operational decisions amidst uncertainty?

Presentation Description

Please note: Due to attendee privacy, there is no recording available for this session.

This interactive learning session will provide a practical, tangible opportunity for participating humanitarian leaders from national/local NGOs/RCRC societies as well as other in-country leaders to reflect on their decision-making experiences/confidence/skills during uncertainty. Grounded in evidence, the session content will challenge assumptions about who should make decisions and how. Participants will discover how uncertainty influences decision-making and how they can improve their decision-making abilities. Specifically, exercises will explore the importance of thinking proactively, identifying how best to make a decision given the circumstances, building confidence/trusting their experience and improving analytical skills. In line with the conference's overall theme, the session content is designed for leaders in-country (anyone with operational leadership/decision-making responsibilities) such as leaders from national/local NGOs, national RCRC leadership, or country directors/heads of programme/unit from INGOs/UN agencies. It will emphasise the importance of making decisions as close to the crisis as possible, and validates the importance of a decision-maker's experience.
