It’s been a healthy last couple of weeks.
I attended a “Patient Harm Conference” last week (provocative title, eh?) – organised by Tricordant, for the NHS and a number of health-related organisations all focused on improving patient safety. I had the privilege of hearing leadership speaker Alistair Mant discuss complex systems (using frogs and bicycles) the subject of Judgement (not in the biblical sense – that’s another story!)
Alistair came out with a couple of quotes which made me think:
Judgement is what you do when you don’t know (and can’t know) what to do – and you know you need to do something fast!
Good judgement is based on experience;
experience is based on bad judgement…
I guess I’d better be the judge of that!
