Hubris Affects Decision-Making

Have you ever noticed that when we are overconfident, we tend to cut more corners? We leave things to chance and expect the same results as when we were more careful. We tend to be more careful in novel experiences. When a team lacks experience in an endeavor, it is likely to cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s. When a team suffers from hubris its experience often works against its decision-making. Corners are cut in an effort to find the best return on investment since there is some measure of familiarity in past experience. A proper amount of team discipline will cut only the correct corners after a proper analysis of the victory.
