What is Decision‐Making Under Stress?
DMUS is a practical seminar for acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to make and carry out decisions in an emergent situation. The method of instruction emphasizes two components of decision-making. The first is awareness: awareness of self, awareness of one’s team, and awareness of the situation. The second component develops technique and tools, which are constructed by the participants in the course of the seminar with the guidance of the instructor.
The seminar was developed as a direct result of long operational experience in both military and civilian capacities by the team leaders, and reflects the belief that individuals can be taught to enhance their efficiency in decision-making through knowledge, training, and practice.
