The Arditti Seminar Series February Session:

Risk Management and Policy Decision Making
Addressing the Big Things: The value of effective failure study

Good decision-making starts with the necessity of identifying the “big things” that really matter, and dealing with our over-reliance on instinct and pervasive use of the “induction fallacy.”

Although our natural bias favors the study of success, this process is insufficient and unsatisfactory, because the human default to instinctive decision-making reflects errors of bias and misperception – errors that can instead be reduced or avoided through “failure study.”

Speaker: James Peterson is a US-trained and qualified lawyer, concentrating for over thirty-five years on complex multi-national matters involving corporate securities and financial information. In law firm and individual practice, he has represented global companies, international accounting firms and their professional groups in disputes, negotiations, government agency proceedings and standard-setting. He teaches a graduate-level course in Risk Management at business and law schools in Chicago and Paris.
