Cognitive Heuristics Seminar

Our fall seminar, “The Impact of Cognitive Heuristics and Biases on Strategic Decision-Making" will tackle the topic of cognitive heuristics, or mental shortcuts, and their impact on the decision-making process. These cognitive heuristics very frequently result in dangerous biases that can influence every strategic choice. During this hands-on seminar, participants will engage with guest speakers from industry and academia and learn how to recognize when they (and their teammates) are utilizing biases, and how to minimize their impact. (6 PDH credits)
