"The course raised my level of awareness of the great potential of cognitive bias creeping into both technical and non-technical decisions. The techniques for de-biasing will be extremely useful when I interact with our teams."
"In my position I interact with several projects across my Center. As a result of this course, I will be able to better recognize when cognitive bias is impacting the decisions the project teams make as they deal with technical and/or programmatic issues. In addition to interaction with project teams, I hope to also utilize the information discussed to positively influence the discussions we have at the Center Leadership Council. Finally, I also believe I will be able to recognize bias as it impacts my personal decision making and improve my own decision-making skills."
"The important thing that I learned are some of the ways people arrive a decisions and the types of things that color those decisions. As my organization undergoes a significant technological transformation, which I am helping to lead, I will hopefully be able to understand and articulate the ways in which biases may impact our decisions in a potentially negative manner."
