Today’s buzz: Thinking. According to “The 10 Skills That Will Get You Hired In 2013” (Forbes.com, Dec. 10, 2012), the top four skills required for 9 of the top 10 most in-demand jobs were critical thinking, complex problem solving, judgment and decision-making, and active listening. Pop quiz: If you apply for a “hot” new job today and are asked to honestly rate your proficiency in these skills, do you know enough about the definition of critical thinking to respond? The experts speak. Dr. Mark Battersby, Professor: “The first step in critical thinking is ‘logical self-defense’—learning not to be taken in by bad but persuasive arguments.” Dr. Sharon Bailin, Professor: “Critical thinking is more than logical self-defense. It involves coming to a reasonable decision based on a careful evaluation of relevant reasons and data.” Deepa Sankar, SAP: “Analytics is not just about numbers. Look beyond those numbers.” Join us for Critical Thinking: Path to True Business Intelligence?
