Lunch Keynote Presentation
February 6, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Michael Roberto is a preeminent authority on strategic decision-making.
Professor Roberto has studied how interpersonal dynamics cause catastrophic organizational failures (such as the Columbia Space Shuttle accident and the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy) and how to structure decision-making processes for success.
His book, Know What You Don’t Know, helps business leaders find and prevent problems before they happen, with practical techniques for recognizing hidden signs of trouble and for defusing the potential threat.
In his previous book, Why Great Leaders Don’t Take Yes for an Answer: Managing for Conflict and Consensus, Professor Roberto shows how to manage the interpersonal dimensions of decision making, the social, political and emotional aspects that so often determine success.
