Vision, Decision and Leadership

Vision is the most essential ingredient of leadership. This course illustrates how visions arise out of collective decision-making, naturally leading to socially accepted leadership.

Visions are based on business narratives that provide a coherent interpretation of the past pointing towards a direction for the future. This course understands the emergence of business narratives with the aid of established decision theories from economics, sociology, group psychoanalysis, management and cognitive science.
