Balance of Reason, and role of intuition

May 25, 2009

“On balance, one must weigh up the pros and cons, look at the data, and then use intuition where there is missing data.

At some point the data is not there; that is when you will need to make a decision that is difficult.”

Terry Corby, Senior Executive, Accenture
