Video descriptionHow do individuals and organizations make great decisions? The conventional wisdom is that some people are just better at consistently making good decisions, and the rest of us just get by. But research by MIT's Sandy Pentland refutes this idea. Pentland concludes that the best ideas and decisions are made by ""explorers"" who engage with social networks in continuous social exploration. In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Pentland shares insights from this research, describes what social exploration is, and explains how, why, and where it produces better decisions.
