where decisions fail

After going through the Pma, some of the main reasons why I believe decisons might fail are

  • quick instinctive decisions: this is obviously not considering a decision like removing your hand from something hot but more with gut feeling decisions when there are multiple possible options to consider
  • The assumptions: the assumptions are of vital importance.Both made as well as what we already have due to our background  Each assumption made, if done wrong could result in an entirely different answer and decison taken
  • Ignoring what is in front of us: this being rooted in bias and gut instinct, we might tend to look for the answer that we want, and not for were the information leads us
  • Prioritising the wrong factors: again pretty much bias. what i find important might not be wat the organisation wants

  2. All of which could be classified under at least one of the points listed above. For example, taking your first point about mental models. Is not our mental models due to the assumptions we have already made in the past and what we believe is right?
