Jean-Marc Phelippeau's curator insight, November 12, 2013 3:46 PM

L'homme n'est pas une machine rationnelle, et la complexité de la vie et de l'entreprise sont irréductibles à un processus ou à une équation.

Face à l'incertitude et la complexité inhérente à la prise de décision, votre intuition (ou subconscient) et vos émotions sont aussi clés. 

Les avez-vous apprivoisés?

10 Good Reasons Not to Trust Your Brain

10 Good Reasons Not to Trust Your Brain | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
If the human brain is such a marvel of evolution, why does it so often betray us into making poor decisions and acting foolishly?

 

The human brain is a marvelous tool. However, it was designed for a very different world than we currently live in. As a result, it retains many design flaws that do not serve us well, especially in today’s business world where new ways of thinking and ongoing innovation are essential for success.

 

Perhaps the most damaging flaw is the brain’s tendency to think it’s right. In fact, it often insists it is right even in the face of contradictory evidence. So the next time you’re absolutely, positively sure you’re right, consider these 10 reasons not to trust your brain:

Reflecting on Boundaries: Who is Teaching and Who is Learning? | Rethinking Complexity

Reflecting on Boundaries: Who is Teaching and Who is Learning? | Rethinking Complexity | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

"The boundaries of a system are part of its structure. There are structures that are enabling and others that are limiting. There is a delicate balance between openness and safe space. Diversity is healthy, but with certain limits. As systems thinkers, observing and reflecting on the role of the boundaries is an important practice. We need to remember that social systems are human creations. We must recover our power as social systems designers in order to reconfigure those boundaries and enable new and more life-affirming interactions..."

USING HEURISTICS IN ECONOMIC DECISION MAKING

USING HEURISTICS IN ECONOMIC DECISION MAKING | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

Classical economic theory considers a man as rational decision maker that takes into account all relevant information and makes decision that is optimal. This model of decision making was influential until it failed to predict and explain why people make irrational decisionsregarding money. Field of behavioral economics studies decision making that violates axiomsof rational decision-making model. The research we conducted is about prevalence of decisions under heuristics.
