In our last article, we discussed how mental shortcuts such as loss aversion and confirmation bias can impede our ability to make good intuitive decisions. To counter this, various de-biasing techniques have been suggested to help leaders make more efficient decisions. For example, the Checklist Manifesto has proven to be an extremely effective technique for improving decision making in many high-pressure occupations such as medicine, policing, and aviation. In medicine, a simple 5-point checklist aimed at reducing mindless errors during surgery removed almost all infections in the ICU at Johns Hopkins Hospital. In Michigan, a similar protocol helped reduce infections by 66% within 3 months and saved an estimated 1,500 lives within a year and a half.
