Inhaltsangabe: Decision-making has been one of the principal victims of 'modern' thinking. The 'analytical' approach has, of course, brought us vaccines, electricity and the internal combustion engine. But, in seeking to break things down into their component parts and improve the parts, governments and businesses continue to make some astonishingly bad decisions. What's more, many enterprises still pay close attention to 'decisions' and 'decision-making' whilst overlooking the bigger picture: the organizational system within which those decisions get made. This elegant book is a guide for any public, private, government or non-profit organization that needs a system for making better decisions. It sets out to change our 'analytical' habit and invites enterprises to consider the bigger picture. Author Vince Barabba presents an elegantly simple approach to making better decisions. He calls this approach 'The Decision Loom' and bases it on Systems Thinking, Design Thinking and Complexity Theory. He also describes the four core capabilities that any organization must put in place for this approach to work. What's more (because we're humans and prefer stories to instruction manuals) the tapestry of the book is embroidered with fascinating examples from the author's lifetime of experience at the head of American corporate and public decision-making.
Über den Autor: In an extraordinary career as political campaign survey researcher, business market researcher, intelligence gatherer, and knowledge developer, Vince Barabba has helped Governors, Congressmen and US Presidents - as well as the Boards of several of America's leading corporations - take some critically important decisions. In each role, he has taken plenty of those decisions himself. Co-founder and chairman of Market Insight Corporation, Vince serves as a Commissioner of the California Citizen Redistricting Commission, and he is chairman of The State of the USA, a nonprofit corporation providing quality information to the American public on key changing societal, economic, and environmental conditions. He was, until 2003, General Manager of Corporate Strategy and Knowledge Development at General Motors, where he conceived and devised OnStar and MyProductAdvisor. He is a Past President of the American Statistical Association. Mr. Barabba twice served as director of the Census Bureau and is the only person to have been appointed to that position by presidents of different political parties. Between his government service and GM assignments, he served as manager of market research for Xerox and director of market intelligence for Eastman Kodak. In recognition of his private and public sector performance, he was been awarded: Induction into the Market Research Council's Hall of Fame The American Marketing Association's Parlin Award for leadership in the application of science to marketing research The MIT/GM Buck Weaver Award for individuals who have contributed significantly to the advancement of theory and practice in marketing science The System Dynamics Society's Applications Award for the best "real world" application of system dynamics The American Marketing Association's Explor Award (through the Market Insight Corporation) granted to organizations who have demonstrated the most innovative uses of technology in applications that advance research, online or otherwise The Certificate of Distinguished Service for Contribution to the Federal Statistical System from the US Office of Management and Budget
