Forewarned is forearmed !

Did you know that 100% of humans are the victims of cognitive biases? It’s unfortunately true and since you are human, you are one of these victims…
But what is it?

A cognitive bias is a pattern of deviation in judgment, whereby inferences about other people and situations may be drawn in an illogical fashion.

Cognitive bias are generally subconscious.

They specifically impact decision makers and Project Managers. We are ideal targets because we live under heavy pressure: time, costs, content of deliverables, quality of products, customer satisfaction, management and peer pressure, office politics…
