I recently finished reading "Blink" by Malcom Gladwell . I really liked the book . It speaks about :
- Decisions taken in snap with a very little information can be as effective as calculated ones . He says just " Thin Slice" ( dealing with little information ) and do a snap decision .
- You can learn how to take effective snap judgements
- You can learn when you'll go wrong and when not to take these snap judgements
Malcom has tried to explain his point quoting many research reports that "Thin Slicing" really works .
Any takers for this ? What'll happen to those looong meetings , reams of paper for reports , analysis , in our corporate culture and still failing to take decisions .
