Dan Suciu - Lecturer, PhD @ Computer Science, UBB

Simona Bonghez - CEO @ Colors in Projects

Live from Conference Hall

10th November, 14:45-15:45

Leaders are required to make good decisions under huge amounts of pressure and time constraints. Studies confirm that 95% of these decisions are the result of an intuitive approach and not of rational logic. What can we do about it? In this session, we will reveal some of the most important mental traps that can impact our decisions and, through a series of real-life experiments, we will discuss practical ways to deal with them in our projects.
