Here is a recent webinar, “How Four Cognitive Biases Deceive Analysts and Destroy Actionability,” that Eric Garland delivered in conjunction with AuroraWDC and The Intelligence Collaborative. Email us to discuss and reserve a webinar for your organization.


Pre-Webinar Overview
The best intelligence program can produce failure if cognitive bias goes unrecognized and unmanaged. Even if you engage in best practices, social bias, memory bias, decision bias, and probability bias can hijack your program. In this webinar, Mr. Garland lays out the latest in behavioral economic research to show how sophisticated intelligence practitioners can produce superior results – or face strategic catastrophe despite their best efforts.
