Artificial Intelligence VS Natural Stupidity


"My colleagues, they study artificial intelligence; me, I study natural stupidity." - Tversky



I'm with Tversky. 


I study, and help fix


'natural stupidity' in the form of


entirely-avoidable self-inflicted wounds



The primary form of this that I see in organizations:



🔴 RATIONALIZING AWAY OBVIOUS PROBLEMS 🔴



Which of these


are you and your org


ignoring or rationalizing away?



→ Bloated teams


→ Cultural malaise


→ Toxic employees


→ A lack of process


→ Outdated systems


→ Misplaced/bad bets


→ Bad M&A integration


→ Competitor strengths


→ Unaccountable teams


→ Poorly managed budgets


→ Lack of strategic direction


→ Missed operational metrics


→ An unprofitable product line


→ Underperforming employees


→ Poorly administrated systems


→ Lack of true product differentiation



Rationalizing these away


instead of owning them outright


and addressing them expeditiously


is stupid...but it comes naturally to us,


and is something AI just does not fix...(yet).



Artificial Intelligence


loses to this kind of


Natural Stupidity.

🟩🟩🟩🟩 ACTION 🟩🟩🟩🟩 



I run diagnostics for my clients' organizations,


collecting data to cut through the rationalizing BS.



Data makes unpopular decisions


or difficult actions 


a bit easier.



If you're a hashtag#CEO or hashtag#COO


and feel a neutral outside party


running a diagnostic could help your org...



▶️ REACH OUT ◀️



...and we can discuss what that would look like.
