Why This Course?
Rekon Group believes in the importance of consistency and progression in one’s professional development. It’s not enough to have theoretical knowledge. Practical application is also necessary, especially under the guidance of an experienced coach and mentor.
You can have both when you sign up for our decision-making course at Rekon Group.

Register your team and lay the foundations for a resilient and high-performing organisation.
We recommend this course to professionals who wish to advance their careers. Creative and timely decision-making is crucial because it’s not something that can be taught in one day. It can, however, be learned over time and with practice.As such, this course is ideal for all employee levels. Problems are less likely to occur when everyone is capable of coordinating optimal decisions at the right times. Independent thinkers waste no time, and people in leadership positions can dedicate more resources for other important matters. As for the more seasoned leaders, our course can be a refresher and source of new strategies for effective decision-making.

I have worked with Rekon Group to deliver training on two business tools known as the “Decide” and “Direct” tools.
The training was cascaded through the business – starting with the executive and rolling down via a number of guided workshops.
Critically, we quickly found that people starting talking about “our intent”, “the environment” what our “options” were; as opposed to tackling the same problems in the same way; or potentially just asking their direct leader for the answer/resolution. Quickly. People were collaborating and evaluating alternatives instead of jumping to conclusions. We had a common language and we understood what each other was doing. We were able to leverage this quite quickly in the business to drive better outcomes and gain some momentum.
The tools were very helpful. “Doing a Decide” is quite a common call in our business. The stronger users adopted the Direct template and started to house more critical items such as Business Unit strategy inside this document. The two tools operate hand in hand. I know that Rekon Group has since deployed these tools on mobile devices.
Overall, I have found the engagement with Rekon Group to be valuable, both individually and for the team; and would strongly recommend any business seriously consider the programme that Rekon offer.
The Rekon Group program was rolled out to the Coates Hire West Business Unit to strengthen our businesses planning and decision making capabilities from the front line right through to our senior leaders to generate improved performance in both financial and safety results.
The program gave us a common process and language when planning and problem solving in all situations from day to day operational execution to yearly and multi year strategic planning processes with equal impact.
We found that the discipline of framing up the situation, what our objective was, what our options were and how to execute the chosen option in a structured process improved the quality and speed of our decisions and outcomes at all levels and allowed our senior leaders to coach our front line leaders in making better decisions by working through the process together making it highly collaborative and practical.
It can be done in 5 minutes for simple problems and also be used in complex situations requiring many inputs and deep thought.
We have used the processes to develop our annual BU business plans the last 4 years and we have seen very strong ownership and outcomes because of the process by all stakeholders involved.
I highly recommend the program to anyone who operates a large complex business to simplify planning and decisions to allow the business to become more agile and empowering to improve business performance.
