How Engineers Avoid Decisions Leading to People Disasters via Behavioral Science
In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, engineers will dramatically improve their skills at making excellent decisions about people. Cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral economics shows that the large majority of people-related problems stem from one or a number of poor decisions. These bad decisions result from unconscious dangerous judgment errors that scholars call cognitive biases. Fortunately, recent behavioral economic decision science has shown how simple yet effective decision-making strategies can enable you to protect yourself and those you lead from cognitive biases and consequently avoid disastrous people-related decisions. This presentation will offer you case studies and best practices, combined with groundbreaking research in decision science, to give engineers the most critical skills and take-aways that you need to help yourself and those on your teams make the best people decisions.
