A few readings on informed business decision making

Following the mantra, “in God we trust, everybody else bring data”, business decision making needs to have its roots in data, analysis and insights we can get from the data. Here are a few articles that were in the news recently:

  1. Pendulum Is Swinging Back on ‘Scenario Planning – Wall Street Journal
  2. Don’t rely too much on your gut – Wall Street Journal  (contrast this with the book “Blink” by Mr. Malcolm Gladwell on split second decision making)
  3. Business Systems – Competitive advantage and understanding how changes in one part can affect the rest of the system. – McKinsey Quarterly (video)
