The Royal Society
Science+ meeting organised by Professor David Tuckett, Dr David Good and Professor Leonard Smith
Panel discussion 1: Real world decision making in government, business and the economy
To what extent is radical uncertainty a regular feature of the decision-making context in government and business? What is the essence of the sorts of decision-making challenges that have to be faced? How is ambivalence and contest recognised and handled? How is information processed? What is the role for quantification, formal modelling, AI and experimentation? What are the resistances? How are opportunities missed? What goes wrong? How can mistakes or paralysis be prevented? How far is useful feedback available? When is groupthink operative and how might it be avoided? What might be helpful? The speakers will provide their own views and examples and more.
John will join the panel discussion alongside Gemma Mortensen, Dr Trevor Maynard, Dr Rumman Chowdhury and Lord Gus O’Donnell.
