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:


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→ Outdated systems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...


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