  • Think Again: Why Good Leaders Make Bad Decisions and How to Keep it From Happening to You Sydney Finkelstein, Jo Whitehead, Andrew Campbell
    Harvard Business Press, 2009

    Why do smart and experienced leaders make flawed, even catastrophic, decisions? Why do people keep believing they have made the right choice, even with the disastrous result staring them in the face? And how can you be sure you’re making the right decision, without the benefit of hindsight? The authors show how the shortcuts our brains have learned to take over millennia of evolution can derail decision making. Think Again offers a powerful model for making better decisions, describing red flags to watch for and detailing the decision-making safeguards we need. Using examples from business, politics, and history, Think Again deconstructs bad decisions, as they unfolded in real time, to show how to avoid the same fate.
