Many believe that you can judge the quality of a decision by the success of the outcome…………’
But can you really?’
What if the person making the decision was reckless or had a high propensity for risk-taking, or was a gambler?
And what if the reason there was a successful outcome was mere luck?
What we need to think about is the role the decision or decisions that were made played in the outcome.
What do we know about the biases that may have come into play when a particular decision is being made?
In this episode, we also look at outcome, champion, and experience biases because they can all have a major impact on decision-making.
