I hope you are well and managing to re-balance life. Has any of you had the chance to create or teach a course on how to improve accurate decision making regarding signals (e.g., differentiating false alarm from actual threat), helping professionals judge incoming information more logically, balancing caution and pragmatic aspects and to get better at separating facts from inference? I may have an opportunity to design and deliver training for a major multinational to a team that deals with detecting threats. The company wants these highly skilled professionals to be able to improve their judgement in various situations related to assessing information and its meaning and potential importance.
More generally, I am intrigued by this area and, especially, with the challenge on how to identify relevant research in the area and convert it to teachable modules for graduate students or other audiences. I teach mostly in Masters in Management programs and, while these themes are close to my heart and I introduce them in between the lines when I teach organizational behaviour (or other management courses), I never designed a training that is focused on that, especially for experienced professionals, so I am curious to see if there are any materials out there.
Thanks for any tips!
