Dilbert on assumption making (cartoon video)

You know by now that we try to bring you one new video cartoon every week!

This week Dilbert is dealing with the issue of assumption making.

As usual, however, it gives us an excuse to raise a more serious issue for business continuity planning.

The way people make assumptions can be very interesting to watch, and people like Dan Gardner tell us why, in a rather more entertaining manner that some of the text books we’ve seen.  For example, fatal car accidents in the year following 9/11 went up roughly tenfold because people were afraid to fly?  It’s all to do with heuristics.

Business continuity planners might find books such as Gardner’s Risk: The Science and Politics of Fear or Kahneman’s Judgment Under Uncertainty a useful read!
