Readers of my regular newsletters will have got a newsletter titled “Beat Bias” last week.
If you didn’t, there is a sign-up box below.
If you did get it and the short article piqued your interest, I notice a splendid and very timely article on the Harvard Business Review site. ï¿½It is co-authored by Nobel Laureate, Daniel Kahneman. Kahneman, along with his long-time co-worker Amos Tversky, are the most influential researchers in the area of cognitive bias – I would say they pretty much founded the field. Sadly, Tversky died before the Nobel Committee recognised their work in 2002 (Economics prize), and Nobel rules forbidï¿½posthumous awards. ï¿½Kahneman said:
“I feel it is a joint prize.
We were twinned for more than a decade.”
I recommend this HBR article:ï¿½The Big Idea: Before You Make That Big Decision…
byï¿½Daniel Kahneman,ï¿½Dan Lovallo, andï¿½Olivier Sibony.
What no Apprentice Blog?
Yup – yet again, I’m away from home today, so you’ll have to wait until tomorrow!
