    I have listened to Audiobook and I have forgotten almost all information in a couple of days, but one thought was memorable enough. Re-evaluate departmental goals yourself. Everyone tries to be on a safe side and because of that, the costs can get over the roof. Another lesson, is that we are not all that rational, and there are cognitive biases to be aware of. I should have taken notes to retain more good tips.

    A very enlightening read about decision making with a plethora of examples and accurate pinpoints to the hidden traps and biases in decision making. Yet, many of the examples refer to multinational large companies which makes some sections seems irrelevant to small companies.

    A lot of on cognitive biases. A lot on how to improve organizational structure for making better decision. But almost nothing on how to do better decisions as a person.

    I use insights I gained from this book on a day-to-day basis while leading my company.

    The first two chapters are a good summary of biases and cautions you need to take to make better decisions. The other chapters are more focused towards organizational decision making and might be helpful only for entrepreneurs/CEOs, but quite valuable! Gave some good pointers to the problems I have been personally working with.

    A bit of a jumble, but if you mentally rearrange it, it could be a solid insight into some elements of decision-making.

    The first part is excellent. Articles contain particular and precise pieces of advice. Good examples, strong and clean thoughts. Some statements triggered me in the right way. The last articles consist of shady and unclear wording. I didn't get any through from them, even the main one. Anyway, the book is worth reading for everyone, regardless of your position.

    Хотілось би щоб трохи більше статей було із цього десятиліття, адже деякі із них за час після того як вони були надруковані в журналі стали дуже популярними і концепції представлені в них відомі і з інших джерел

    A must read for you who want to understand 'structured' decision making. I used this as one of the references for my hiring project, structured hiring.
