An analyst is the right (and often the only, forgive my cynicism) a manager's hand. And this hand could hold manager and help to avoid the typical errors associated with cognitive biases.
In my report, I will talk about mistakes, which could be avoided if the analyst takes advantage of his or her knowledge in time. By the way, it works in both ways - manager can often return the analyst to the right path with timely question.
This theme is not the first time rises on conferences. And Daniel Kahneman's book "Think, fast and slow" is becoming a must read for anyone. But I think it is important to return to the subject, if we want to make fewer errors. Yes, we can not protect against accidents, but by systematic errors - have to.
