All Police Actions Take Place in an Atmosphere of Uncertainty

"Certainty, risk, and uncertainty. In everyday language, we make a distinction between “certainty” and “risk,” but the terms “risk” and “uncertainty” are mostly used as synonyms. They aren’t. In a world of known risks, everything, including the probabilities, is known for certain. Here, statistical thinking and logic are sufficient to make good decisions. In an uncertain world, not everything is known, and one cannot calculate the best option. Here, good rules of thumb and intuition are also required." ~Gerd Gigerenzer, Risk Savy

Organizations are already full of potentially brilliant leaders who just need to be unleashed on the problems and opportunities crisis or conflicts are made of.

The Case Method In Developing Police: "Cold Calling" Will Have to Be Unambiguous

"...I describe the kinds of mistakes human beings make, the blind alleys they follow down and the detours they take in attempting tempting to cope with such problems. But I am not concerned with thinking alone, for thinking is always rooted in the total process of psychic chic activity. There is no thinking without emotion. We get angry, for example, when we can’t solve a problem, and our anger influences our thinking. Thought is embedded in a context of feeling and affect; thought influences, and is in turn influenced by, that context." -Dietrich Dorner
