About this talk

In highly complex situations of information overload, management decisions and judgments can be influenced by so-called cognitive biases. Cognitive biases, if applied the wrong way, can cause planning mistakes and pitfalls in the interpretation of variance analysis. Some examples are:

  • Too optimistic estimation of future cash flows

  • Excessive focus on a specific experience or information

  • Misinterpretation of market trends

  • Unintentional selection of information that supports a business case

  • Telling compelling story rather than presenting a thorough analysis

This session will address these biases and illustrate their effects on the management decisions. We will go through several examples and learn tools and techniques to recognise and mitigate the negative implications of biases. Learn how finance professionals can help business leaders make balanced decisions in the face of uncertainty or in new situations
