Explain what they are and how they arise.

Illustrate with examples from personal experience.

Provide suggestions on how each bias can be minimized or overcome.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper, using a minimum of two peer reviewed sources.

Individual Assignment: How to Minimize Biases and Increase Objective Decision Making

 

Purpose of Assignment

 

While risks may be obvious in a project, individual biases can influence the ability for change to be effective and may be more subversive. The purpose of this assignment is for you to explore potential biases that can alter the outcome of a needed change and to identify ways to identify and minimize these biases. This assignment is important as it presents a differing way of examining analytics and the perception that data is an objective tool for making decisions.
