Applied Behavioural Science Winterschool

Learn from leading behavioural science practitioners and academics as they share their insights on how to deliver meaningful change.

Evidence suggests that organisational decisions are too often inconsistent, biased, swayed by arbitrary considerations, suffer from debilitating unintended consequences, clash with social norms and prove ultimately self-defeating. How might we better understand such factors so we can improve our decision-making processes at work?

This Winterschool will offer practical, hands-on advice and training to help you acquire a better understanding of how you, your staff and your clients make decisions and of common mistakes to avoid.

Staff from Griffith Business School, and the NSW branch of the UK’s Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) will jointly lead this two-day workshop. The presenters include Professors of Economics and Social Marketing and Advisors from BIT. The speakers together have substantial expertise in the field of behaviour change and behavioural economics.

  • Civil servants and managers who like to shape policies
