Managing Cognitive Bias Risk – Recognition & Avoidance Essentials

Is cognitive bias hindering your ability to accurately assess risk?

Cognitive bias is a systematic pattern of deviation from using rationality in judgement. As human beings, we naturally and unconsciously use mental shortcuts to make quick decisions, so it is crucial that we learn to manage our cognitive bias - especially when it comes to evaluating risk and business decisions.

It is essential that risk management professionals be skilled in critical thinking and identify the impact that cognitive bias has on decision-making. This self-paced, online course will teach you how to recognize and distinguish the different types of biases, how they can negatively impact analysis and judgement, and how to manage them.
