Delve into behavioural science and human behaviour
Why do we act in the ways that we do, and how can we apply our understanding of human behaviour to the world of business?
This four-week course will help you explore the discipline of behavioural science and how we can apply this understanding to human behaviour and the world of business.
You’ll learn how to utilise effective messengers, understand the influence of socio-cultural norms, and recognise the role of the ego better to serve the needs of your employees and customers.
Understand nudging and the rational model
You’ll explore behavioural economics and what we know about how people make decisions.
This will help you identify the shortcomings of the rational model of human behaviour and give you an understanding of heuristics and biases.
Through a number of case studies, you’ll also learn about nudging and the rationale for using it.
