What's the Matter With Overthinking?

Think no one cares when you're being indecisive? Think again. It's clear from past research that the care, or thoughtfulness, with which people make decisions affects their own certainty about those decisions. But very little research has examined the inferences people draw from other people's thoughtfulness. We wondered whether people are more drawn to, and more willing to be influenced by, someone who spends a lot of time and effort making a decision, or very little time and effort making the same decision

Joe Boutte's curator insight, September 5, 2:50 PM

Calibrating our decision processes to the data available, the situation, and the time available is an element of our individual processes.  The ability to understand the situation and impacts of a decision in context of all the elements helps us to be better leaders and to make timely decisions for action by our teams or organizations.  The theory of calibration in this article and the ideas for future research are very important in developing the leadership acumen to get things done and influence people to positive actions and outcomes.

Developing a Knowledge Management Strategy Map | Peyman Akhavan, Reza Hosnavi Atashgah | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

"This paper is to discuss a knowledge management strategy map based on Kaplan and Norton’s strategy maps. In this way, KM strategies are reviewed first and then Kaplan and Norton’s strategy map concepts are introduced as an overall methodology for extracting KM strategy maps. The required context will be explored for deploying both knowledge creating and knowledge application strategies in the organization based on four balanced perspective of knowledge management considered in this paper. The authors determined these four issues as balanced dimensions in the knowledge management strategies. These balanced dimensions are intellectual capital, KM processes, value creating dimension and KM performance dimension. Finally, a list is determined that includes various measures for each perspective. The identified critical success factors of the four balanced dimension can also act as a guideline for KM experts in the organizations. This helps to ensure that the essential issues are covered during design and implementation phase of knowledge management strategies."

Three Convergent Thinking Techniques Every Analyst Should Master

Three Convergent Thinking Techniques Every Analyst Should Master | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

 driven many of the changes in the way intelligence analysts do their jobs. Fundamental to these changes were (and are) attempts to get analysts to think differently. Specifically, most of the discussion and many of the efforts were aimed at increasing divergent thinking abilities among intelligence professionals.  Red teaming, brainstorming, and the ubiquitous informal encouragement to "think outside the box" are all, to one degree or another divergent thinking strategies. There are good reasons, however, for analysts to master the flip side of divergent thinking - convergent thinking -- as well. There is quite a bit of excellent research that suggests that having a strong divergent thinking skillset is not enough.  In fact, the research goes further.  Having only strong divergent thinking skills likely lowers forecasting accuracy..

Here's Why People Don't Get Your Strategy

Here's Why People Don't Get Your Strategy | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

It would seem that you’re not a cool, sophisticated professional until you have a “strategy” or a “strategic” approach for everything. But are they all really “strategic?” Does everything need a “strategy?”

Recently Roger Martin wrote a piece on the Harvard Business Review blog titled “Why Smart People Struggle with Strategy.” He made a number of really good points, including the fact that, “Great strategy is aided by diversity of thought and attitude.“ A point that we’ve also explored in depth in a previous Forbes blog.But I think there is another reason why most people (not just the cool, sophisticated professionals) struggle with strategy. And it’s pretty simple. It comes down to clarity. There just isn’t a clear understanding of what it (strategy) is.
