Strategic & Creative Decision Making
Scientific strategies and methods to reduce errors and increase insights of decision makers and organizations
In The Myth of Experience, behavioral scientists Emre Soyer and Robin Hogarth take a transformative look at experience and the many ways it deceives and misleads us. With real-life examples from bloodletting to personal computers to pandemics, and distilling cutting edge research, Soyer and Hogarth illustrate the flaws of experience as a guide to decision making and provide the remedies to improve our judgments and choices—in the workplace and beyond.
