Take a multi-million product launch that flopped, four hundred million lost in an automated trading system that doesn't work, or the current favorite, a hundreds-of-millions healthcare website that doesn't work. These things happen so often that we've become numb to them; they are predictable. If they are predictable, they should also be avoidable — but somehow the system dynamics are set up for us to fail. Why is that, and what can we do to change it? Michael Larsen offers his $0.02 this week with a book review roundup on books designed to help us do just that, on "Chaos, Intuition, and Getting To The Party Early." Save the $300 in book fees (and ~20 hours of reading) and check out his roundup — and maybe, just maybe, get an idea on where to dig for more, or how to change the workplace.
