Presentation title: Don’t Trust Your Brain – Cognitive biases and how to fight against them
Project team members are required to make good decisions under huge amounts of pressure and time constraints. Studies confirm that 95% of these decisions are the result of an intuitive approach and not of rational logic. What can we do about it? In this highly interactive session, we will reveal some of the most critical mental traps that can impact our decisions and suggest practical ways to avoid them.
