Modeling Better Decisions with Dustin Thostenson
From chaos to clarity, make quality decisions with confidence.
Quality decisions need to be made without full analysis and include uncertainty.
Patterns exist. Comparing a new problem to an existing model can help elude analysis paralysis. A study by LexisNexis showed, “on average, employees spend more than half their workdays receiving and managing information rather than using it to do their jobs!” Recognizing what models we may be using to validate our gut instincts may help us find more models to expand our capabilities.
