Big Data. Little Thinking.
Leadership in the Age of Data Dominance
About the Webinar
The new wave of data driven decision making is meeting some dissenting voices. Nassim Taleb (author of “The Black Swan” and “Fooled By Randomness”) has famously said, “Big data may mean more information, but it also means more false information.”
In this final Webinar in the Predictive Analytics Webinar series, we will focus on several concerns with the “data driven” approach:
- Data interpretation involves identifying patterns – but human beings often see patterns where none exist
- Risks which sabotage leaders who try to stand tall amid data-induced anxiety and the highly reactive atmospheres that contaminates the decision-making process
- How the pursuit of data has come to resemble a form of substance abuse, resulting in teams composed of Data Junkies
Data driven decision making works for specific problems, some of which may be very important. But big, strategic questions require ingenuity and creative thought that cannot be derived from a database.
