St Andrews in Focus - Issue 81 Mar / Apr 2017
From the Editor
“You must be kidding!” is a legitimate response from someone confronted with dubious information before some kind of decision has to be made. Many learned theories exist about decision making. Innumerable hours of time have surely been spent by well-meaning people organising (lucrative?) seminars on how to make good decisions. Yet I’m inclined to think that at the end of the day it all boils down to luck, encapsulated by those old proverbs that contradict each other: many hands make light work vs. too many cooks spoil the broth / if it ain’t broke don’t fix it vs. if you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always got. Phew! Now perhaps you can see I’m conflicted about how to decide the trajectory of this magazine! Suggestions anyone?
