HEY, NOT SO FAST! - Slow Thinking For Better Decision-Making in & beyond Projects

The PMI Germany Chapter is pleased to offer its 9
th Professional Development Workshop for chapter members and non-chapter participants. 
Participants will have the opportunity to earn 3PDUs for PMP Certification renewal (Leadership: 1, Strategic: 1,Technical: 1).


You want to make better decisions and lead others to make better decisions. This seminar is for anyone who wants to promote productive decision-making in a highly diverse environment.


This 3-hour seminar will introduce you to the tools and techniques of “slow thinking”. Based on this, you will develop your personal capacity to navigate through uncertainty and lead better decision-making in the VUCA world – particularly but not only when starting a new project. You will learn to avoid selective perception and unwanted group thinking and the related negative effects. The first drives us into energy-sapping and unproductive discussions. The other leads to decisions that are mediocre or completely removed from reality.


  • You will get to know the techniques of an open-minded and highly-productive thinking procedure that will help
    - Prevent time-stealing and unproductive discussions
    - Avoid thinking errors when beginning complex projects
    - Increase decision quality, not only but especially within interdisciplinary groups
  • Most importantly, you will understand that slow thinking is counter-intuitive – it’s not what we ordinarily do. Thus, a conscious change is needed.
    This change means for every leader first and foremost working on yourself. This work comprises for levels:

    - L1: Your personal attitude (mindset)
    - L2: Before a new project or initiative
    - L3: Before a meeting
    - L4: In a meeting

In the training, you will understand how to develop your personal capacity on each level and thus utilize the power of slow thinking for your initiatives.


This online seminar will combine inspirational presentations with interactive exercises. During the seminar you will get the opportunity to put your own thought patterns under the microscope and compare them with those of other people. You will practically apply and thus experience the power of slow thinking (“wow” moments guaranteed). A major part of the training will be spent on “slow thinking in a meeting” (see above, L4). Here, you will get to know the three phases of slow thinking – (1) divergent thinking, (2) change of perspective, (3) convergent thinking – and the tools to apply them in practice.
