Blind Spot Analysis

Capt. Jamie Trost of Pride of Baltimore II held a session on Blind Spot Analysis at the Tall Ships America conference.

Blind Spot Analysis is essentially identifying the flaws of your organization and finding solutions to those flaws.

There are 7 deadly blind spots in an organization:

Invalid assumptions

Winner's Curse

Escalating Commitment

Constrained Perspective


Reasoning By Analogy

Information Filtering

Giving thought to these 7 topics may help with identifying the failures and the changes that need to be made. At times you do need to challenge the pre-existing beliefs and culture of the business.

With someone like Captain Trost and others views giving input, things that may have been overlooked can be evaluated.
