How to Design Decisions by Stefanie Norvaisas

9.99

Length: 27:23

Speaker: Stefanie Norvaisas is the Director of Strategy & Research at Design Concepts.

Synopsis: We make thousands of decisions every day, many of them with our “fast brain”—the part that takes care of brushing your teeth, navigating you to the coffee maker, and getting your car backed out of the driveway. It’s your mind on cruise control—using shortcuts, or biases, to help us preserve energy. And it works for these types of tasks. But when you’re thinking about bigger, more complex issues, biases can often trip you up. With many decisions there’s no clear-cut data to point the way; choices can seem subjective. In an enlightening talk based on a design-thinking approach to decision-making, Stefanie will discuss how people and teams can work to design decisions and how you can avoid common flaws in human reason. 

Event: The How To Conference by CU Water Cooler was held at the Majestic Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin on June 12-13, 2018.
