There’s a lot of noise around us – distractions of all sorts that can be found wherever people make judgments and decisions. Too often, individuals and organizations ignore this. They show “noise neglect”, as Nobel Prize Laureate Daniel Kahneman and his co-authors Olivier Sibony and Cass R. Sunstein argue.
