Most managers will react by asking for more facts, more precise data, hoping that more information will enable them to take the “winning” decision. Unfortunately, gathering precise data is different from creating actual intelligence. First of all, numerical precision can induce a false sense of certainty, which is inherently dangerous in an uncertain world. Secondly, data itself can be interpreted in different ways, and open the road to potential biases.

Unfortunately, gathering precise data is different from creating actual intelligence. First of all, numerical precision can induce a false sense of certainty, which is inherently dangerous in an uncertain world. Secondly, data itself can be interpreted in different ways, and open the road to potential biases.

Last but not least, the goal of decision-makers should not be to overcome uncertainty, but instead to reduce it, and manage it. In this webinar, Professor Anne-Sophie Chaxel will propose ways to turn information into actual intelligence, by reviewing biases that may cloud the interpretation of your data and by proposing ways to anticipate and prepare for multiple futures.
