The tools to become a better decision-maker and a better manager
When faced with a decision, we all believe we’re weighing the facts objectively and making rational, thoughtful decisions. In fact, science tells us that in situations requiring careful judgment, every individual is influenced by his or her own biases to some extent. Drawing on the very latest behavioral decision research, Judgment in Managerial Decision Making, Seventh Edition examines judgment in a variety of managerial contexts and provides important insights that can help you make better managerial decisions.
Widely-recognized by practitioners and academics in fields ranging from behavioral finance to public policy, psychology, and economics, this Seventh Edition of the classic text:
For psychologists, the book outlines a systematic framework for using psychological findings to improve judgment. For the economist, the book suggests a critique of the classic economic model of decision making. Most of all, however, for every manager or financial decision maker, this book offers a clear path to better decisions.
Provides training in decision making by creating awareness of the decision-making process and by offering strategies for improving these processes. For use in undergraduate economics, psychology, and organizational behavior courses. This fourth edition provides more contemporary examples of real-world decisions, a new chapter on motivational biases, and expanded material on decision-making from individual and multi-party perspectives.
