Article of the Week
New Evidence Reveals Training Can Reduce Cognitive Bias and Improve Decision Making
A new study from HEC Paris suggests training can have significantly reduce the influence cognitive bias has on decision making. Through a game-based debiasing training, HEC Paris business students were confronted with how a collection of biases interfered with decision making. Afterwards, these students completed the "Carter Racing" case study, in which they had to make a complex business decision based on a variety of factors. Based on their solutions to the case study, it was determined that the students who experienced training were 29% less likely to make "inferior hypothesis-confirming" decisions.
