Strategic Decision Making with Applied Information Economics

Take a Look
Posted on
July 16, 2024

“For the first time [in 35 years] there is a word on which everybody (IT, data specialists, process experts, AI engineers, business people, subject-matter experts and even executives) agrees and has an almost similar definition… that word is decision”

Erick Brethenoux
AI, Data Science & Decision Intelligence Research Director at Gartner.

“What makes a decision great is not that it has a great outcome. A great decision is the result of a good process”

Annie Duke
Author of How to Decide and Quit

“A wise leader does not see herself as someone who simply makes sound decisions; ... she views herself as a decision architect in charge of designing her organization’s decision-making processes.”

Olivier Sibony
Author of Noise and You're About to Make a Terrible Mistake

“Recognizing our shortcomings is a crucial first step on the path to making better decisions, creating better societies, and fixing our institutions.”

Dan Ariely
Professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University

“As we’ve worked with organizations seeking to become more agile, we’ve found that it’s possible to accelerate the improvement of decision making through the simple steps of categorizing the type of decision that’s being made and tailoring your approach accordingly”
