four ways annie duke talks about decision strategy

Whenever we  make a choice based on imperfect information or with consequences over time, we use decision strategy.

In the workplace, success depends on how we make those choices through decision strategy. Everyone, from the newest employees to the principals, is part of the continuous cycle of deciding and learning. These same strategies determine the quality of choices in relationships, health and lifestyle, investing and consumerism, and parenting. Drawing on the unique combination of training as a behavioral scientist and 20 years as a professional poker player, Annie Duke offers frank assessments of the challenges presented by decision strategy and practical ways of confronting those challenges.

Annie brings her background in cognitive science and poker together to understand how we make decisions. Consequently, her talks include the systematic obstacles that prevent us from making our best decisions and what these obstacles cost us in the workplace and throughout our lives. Furthermore, her speeches discuss how to create practical solutions that make decision-making more rational.
