Decision making and creativity go hand in hand. I’m interested in books and tools that can help me think clearly because we all have brain bugs, aka cognitive biases, that hinder us from making great decisions. Only a handful of people actively work to keep biases away. How do they do that?
This the sixteenth of a series of weekly posts where I will answer a few common questions about innovation. Please feel free to add your own response. Also, if you have any questions you think we should discuss, let me know.
“The better decision maker has at his/her disposal repertoires of possible actions; checklists of things to think about before he acts; and he has mechanisms in his mind to evoke these, and bring these to his conscious attention when the situations for decision arise.” – Herbert Simon, Nobel Laureate
