“In any great organization it is far, far safer to be wrong with the majority than to be right alone.”
— John Kenneth Galbraith
You Can Learn from Mistakes, If You Are Aware of Making Them
Whatever we were told by economists about the rational homo oeconomicus – this artifical construct of theory has lost its appeal – at least as of recent following the devastating wake of global economic and financial crises.
In many impressive studies psychologists have demonstrated the amount of illusion and self-deception impeding human cognition and decision making: humans are prone to err – and favor doing so in cosy companionship. The often cited collective intelligence seems to be the exception rather than the rule. The more widespread and rather detrimental phenomenon haunting collective decision making is groupthink.
We would like to help you avoid severe fallacies. At the same time we would like to foster your learning from mistakes without having to make them in the first place.
Doing so will not require a long-term assignment; rather we want the solutions to your problems to have a long lasting effect. We would like to engage you in the process of solving your problems and we will be more than happy, if the next time a problem arises, you will get the job done on your own.
