The first session for 2014, will be a book club session.
The book we will be reviewing is Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath. Don’t worry, you don’t have to read it to enjoy/come to the session, but if you do wish to get a copy at Amazon (ebook is available) – here’s the link*: Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work
This book and its content follows on from our session on Decision making in June last year, which Steve then put together a series of posts diving in deeper to the issues he raised during his session. You can find the start of the series here and there are six articles in total.
The main treatise of the book is about the psychology behind the decision making process. The great thing thing about the Heath brothers work, is they provide real insight into ways to actually start doing better at our own decision making and helping others to do so as well. As product managers this type of influence is critical to what we do.
If you would prefer the cheat sheet reading approach, check out some of Teresa Torres‘ articles about this book and the elements that resonate for her and product management. We will take a look at some of this work as well during the session.
January 23rd meet-up: Book club on Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath. Start time 6pm, for 6:30pm kick-off, at the Mail Exchange Hotel, back room behind the Restaurant area. Bourke and Spencer st.
