Book Description

In this unique book, Dr. Hari Singh—a noted business professor—uses an engrossing fictional setting to make the concepts of decision-making interesting and easy-to-absorb. The book consists of 20 chapters in which a murder mystery unfolds. You'll learn the importance of using both your mind and your heart or intuition in making decisions. The foundation of the novel consists of seven critical concepts that are introduced and applied in the mystery: They are: Framing or conceptualizing the issue creatively; Anchoring or relying on reference points; Cause and effect; Taste for risk preference and the role of chance; Negotiation and the importance of trust; Evaluating decisions by a process; Tracking relevant feedback.
