Learn to approach the critical decisions in your life with a more seasoned, educated eye with this fascinating 24-lecture series that explores how individuals, groups, and organizations make effective decisions. The heart of this accessible series is a thorough examination of decision making at three key levels. First, you'll look at decisions made at the individual level, where, among the many things you'll learn is that intuition is more than just a gut instinct and, in fact, represents a powerful pattern recognition capability. Then, you'll explore decisions made at the group level, where you'll try to answer the question of whether groups are "smarter" and more capable of making critical decisions than individuals. And finally, you'll pull back to analyze organizational decision making, in which Professor Roberto demonstrates how some organizations have encouraged and reliably performed vigilant decision making in the face of risky scenarios.
Whether you're the head of a Fortune 500 company, a government agency, or an everyday household, you constantly make decisions important to you and those immediately around you. These lectures offer you a toolbox of practical knowledge and skills that you can apply to various decisions - whether large or small - in your everyday life and work. Professor Roberto's lively lectures are packed with useful anecdotes, tools, and advice designed to improve your own ability to make informed decisions. As you explore the intriguing process of making a good decision, you'll strengthen your grip on individual theories of decision making and the situations that illustrate them.

There is much to say here but I'll limit myself to a brief review. First off, the discussion on cognitive bias alone was worth the price of admission in my opinion. Much more to this series than that though. I intend to listen again. Very interesting from a professional perspective but also I believe these concepts apply to the decisions we make in our personal lives as well.

The digital study guide I found out can only be purchased if you purchase a digital audio copy from Great Courses. A printed Study Guide can be purchased but not a digital copy. Seems a contradiction
The information on Critical Decision Making is well thought out. The examples that the presenter used were they also in the Study Guide-yes, I bought a printed version, it would make the Study Guide, more supportive of the experience and valuable resource.
The process of "sunk cost" where the nature of a sunk cost process overrides many other thought processes of handling risk, and and therefore not allowing for changes when appropriate.
Content wise, I am very satisfied with the content of the program, Audible, why not arrange that if it is available elsewhere, on their site, (a digital study guide) to make it available on yours.
Definitely. The lecturer added so much with his enthusiasm for the subject
I really couldn't stop listening to this book. The subject remained fresh and interesting throughout. It was a great introduction to the Great Courses
Yes, great techniques on how to lead a team I have already started using some of the techniques at work.
He is a really engaging story teller, I think in text it would be kinda of dead.
