About the author

The main focus of the articles is the behavioural aspects of decisions with, in our view, rather too little coverage of analytical tools and techniques. Of the remaining articles, three focus on decision making processes and these become rather tedious, focussing more on what can go wrong than what is needed to get them right. There is however one excellent article by Bain - the last in the book - on the negative aspects of complex annual planning processes and how these tend to stop the right decisions being taken at the right time. This should be read by the CEOs and CFOs of those companies whose annual planning cycles dominate business life for months on end; we’ve come across quite a few.
Despite these reservations the book and series is recommended for those who want to keep in touch with academic thinking on particular topics. Each article has an excellent short summary under the ‘Idea in Brief’ heading, which allows the reader easily to focus on issues of particular interest.
Suitable for business and academic life.
