Fragmented decision-making


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Claim:
Decision-makers conceive of their task as dealing with a sequence of problems that have to be solved one at a time. They do not take into account the side effects and repercussions of certain measures. They deal with the entire system, not as a system but as a bundle of independent mini-systems. And dealing with systems this way breeds trouble. If we do not concern ourselves with the problems we do not have, we soon have them.
