Cognitive Biases are unconscious processes that influence how we perceive the world and how we take decisions. These mechanisms are a result of evolution.
Biases are automatisms of our brain to make our live easier, but they have also a dark side.
There exist more than 150 biases and today we are going to see only 10 of the most relevant to our context and several mitigation strategies.
Learning about biases has helped me professionally and I expect that today after this talk many of you start seeing biases everywhere and applying some of the mitigation techniques I will show.
How should agile coaches and scrum masters deal with some of the most important biases? Why should stop doing retrospectives and start doing proper process improvement and experiments?
