World decision-making expert Gary Klein to DISRUPT.SYDNEY


With market disruption challenging established wisdom, world decision making expert Gary Klein will offer a DISRUPT.SYDNEY masterclass in Australia on 25th May

According to ‘internationally respected decision making expert, Gary A. Klein, ‘managers and staff engaged in enterprises based on traditional business models are finding it increasingly difficult to make decision likely to protect them from market disruption.’

Klein is the author of books such as Seeing What Others Don’t and The Power of Intuition, and is a research psychologist who pioneered naturalistic decision making.

Klein now assists ‘corporations and government agencies to improve their decision making ability and rapid tacit knowledge transfer to staff using a method known as ShadowBox.’ 

For a taste of Klein's book 'Seeing What Others Don't', a radio interview from 2013 that Klein conducted with a fellow called ‘Doug Miles’ on Miles’ ‘Book Talk’ show is embedded below at the end of this article.

“We are entering a world of increasing and accelerated disruption of markets and business models,” said Klein.

“Pitted against new technologies, established knowledge and proven ways of making decisions are less and less reliable.

“While we live in an age of data abundance, which promises more informed decisions than ever, most decision makers find it harder than ever to make decisions and thus to navigate an ever challenging business environment.”

As a result, Klein said that ‘two of the biggest challenges facing modern organisations is the need for the rapid creation of new insights and to accelerate professional development and knowledge transfer within the business in order to stay on top of change.’

Gary Klein will share his insight with interested Australian audiences for the first time when he conducts a DISRUPT.SYDNEY Masterclass on 25th May in Sydney, hosted by the University of Sydney Business School, and in Melbourne on 23rd May.

Here is a radio interview from 2013 that Klein conducted with a fellow called ‘Doug Miles’ on Miles’ ‘Book Talk’ show on the topic of Klein's book, 'Seeing What Others Don't.'
