Thinking in Bets
Annie DukeEven the best decision doesn't yield the best outcome every time: there's always an element of luck that you can't control, and there is always information that is hidden from view. Duke shows readers how to think in bets: How sure am I? What are the possible ways things could turn out? As a former World Series of Poker champion turned business consultant, she draws on examples from business, sports, politics, and (of course) poker to share tools anyone can use to embrace uncertainty and make better decisions.
7/ Why? Because the manager doesn’t know if the salesperson is on the right track. The salesperson could have done everything right, but still lost. Or everything wrong and still won. Here I like @AnnieDuke's decision quality vs. outcome Great book btw https://t.co/vFJHsQ0Fln
