Extensive presentation by Jan Smiedgen about design thinking
Rory Sutherland knows how to save marketing. A very good article published in Wired where he discusses important business and behaviour issues. The human is far less a rational calculating machine than a kind of anxious, moralising, herd-like, reciprocating, image-conscious, story-telling game theorist. While facing an influx of data presented to us in everyday situations, we adopt cognitive short-cuts.
#1 The mere availability effect – mental proximity
#2 Habituation and defaults – “If nothing bad happened last time, do what I did last time.”
#3 Social proof and contagion – herd heuristic
#4 To a game theorist customer loyalty is not irrational
His recommendation: It is not to the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates that we should look for the next great revolution in economic life, but rather to thinkers such as Daniel Kahneman, Robert Kurzban, Dan Ariely, Robert Trivers, Gerd Gigerenzer, Timothy D Wilson and John Tooby.
