Uncertainty, ambiguity and the art of decision making

Uncertainty, ambiguity and the art of decision making | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it
A common myth about decision making in organisations is that it is, by and large, a rational process.   The term rational refers to decision-making methods that are based on the following broad steps: Identify available options. Develop criteria for rating options. Rate options according to criteria developed. Select the top-ranked option. Although this appears to be a…

This viral email from General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis about being 'too busy to read' is a must-read

This viral email from General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis about being 'too busy to read' is a must-read | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

… The problem with being too busy to read is that you learn by experience (or by your men’s experience), i.e. the hard way. By reading, you learn through others’ experiences, generally a better way to do business, especially in our line of work where the consequences of incompetence are so final for young men.

The Science of Intuition: How to Measure 'Hunches' and 'Gut Feelings'

The Science of Intuition: How to Measure 'Hunches' and 'Gut Feelings' | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

"The results showed that when the participants were shown the positive subliminal images, they did better on the task: They were more accurate in determining which way the dots were moving. But they also responded more quickly and reported feeling more confident in their choice.

The experiments also suggested that the participants became better at using their intuition over time, Pearson said. "It's all about learning to use unconscious information in your brain," he said. Just as people can become more comfortable making decisions when they apply logic and reasoning, they may also become more adept at trusting their intuition when they use it more frequently over time, the study revealed. "

How to Act Quickly Without Sacrificing Critical Thinking

How to Act Quickly Without Sacrificing Critical Thinking | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

An unbridled urgency can be counterproductive and costly. If you’re too quick to react, you can end up with short-sighted decisions or superficial solutions, neglecting underlying causes and create collateral damage in the process.

But if you’re too deliberative and slow to respond, you can get caught flat-footed, potentially missing an opportunity or allowing an emergent challenge to consume you.

Paul Ricoeur wrote about how with time and experience reflexive and reflective practices move closer together. He compared it to a character in a narrative as we form our own character. This is like Aristotle's concept of maturing. I think of how I taught when I first stepped into a classroom compared to when I left.

The obvious choice is often wrong.Test yourself with this word problem: Imagine you’re responsible for your company’s car fleet. You manage two models, an SUV that gets 10 miles to the gallon and a sedan that gets 20. The fleet has equal numbers of each, and all the cars travel 10,000 miles a year. You have enough capital to replace one model with more-fuel-efficient vehicles to lower operational costs and help meet sustainability goals. Which upgrade is better?

Examinons ensemble ce qui conduit à une pensée ordinaire et explorons les attitudes qui permettraient d’aller vers une connaissance élaborée.

The Neuroscience of Trust

Companies are twisting themselves into knots to empower and challenge their employees. They’re anxious about the sad state of engagement, and rightly so, given the value they’re losing. Consider Gallup’s meta-analysis of decades’ worth of data: It shows that high engagement—defined largely as having a strong connection with one’s work and colleagues, feeling like a real contributor, and enjoying ample chances to learn—consistently leads to positive outcomes for both individuals and organizations. The rewards include higher productivity, better-quality products, and increased profitability.

Leadership Lessons From Sully

Leadership Lessons From Sully | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

It’s been almost eight years since Captain Chesley Sullenberger miraculously landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River. It began on a chilly day in January 2009 when his plane encountered a flock of geese upon departure from New York’s LaGuardia Airport. Both engines lost thrust, putting 150 passengers and 5 crew members at serious risk. Roughly four minutes later, Sully ditched the plane on the Hudson River. Every soul aboard survived. 

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Take attention to the following statement of Sully: the controller did not try to steer him in a particular direction: his choice of phrasing was helpful to him.
