RDM– The journey of an intutive thinker to a rational being
There is a perfect rationale for every decision that we make and this is something I was hardly aware of.
I am an impuslive decision maker, I make decisions based on my intutions and feeling rather than logic. Over the days I've realised that there are actually perfectly logical means and methods that exist which can aid our decision making and are applicable even in our day to day life. . These decision tools are not only limited to an organsiation but anywhere and everywhere. For example, a simple Paired comparison can help me set my priorities right, or even help me shop :P or I can actually easily measure different scenarios for a situation by simply constructing a decision tree. Now I actually believe the decision tools can wisely and logically help us measure the impact of many decisions that we make in our lives prior to even making those decisions. First when I saw the presentation question on day 1 of the lecture, I never thought we'll be able to do as much justice to the question as we have by the end of this week. At first, I thought that these decisions tools are so subjective but now I've realised that as we go on to research and collect data, we can actually make a definite and successful analysis which are not even biased. As a result of this, I can finally that decision tools are actually so helpful and widely applicable.
From being an intutive, impulsive decision maker to a more sort out, rational and planned decision maker has been quite a learning experience. What a journey! This makes me reflect upon the first day of RDM lecture when Jeff presented the very interesting slides on common sense. I can finally conclude that common sense is actually not that common. MBE has taught me so much. Every module is a turning point. MBE is actually not just a course, its a way of thinking, a way to live your life :)
