What sort of biases are you guilty of applying to your project analysis, planning and management? What systematic approaches can we apply to avoid cognitive bias that results in trouble?
A couple of suggestions from my experience;
- Have your work reviewed by an experienced and independent advisor
- Read an organisation's lessons learned
- If you are on a project re-do, read the PIRs from previous attempts, or interview the survivors
- Reflect on the difference between 'should have' and 'does have' in terms of capability and context
