    As human beings we are biased and these biases are expressed in multiple ways. Some of the biases are because of the social milieu that we grow up and many others are acquired over the years. These biases impact our actions, decisions and perceptions about people and scenarios. Carrying these biases into the business analysis world can sometimes be rewarding, sometimes catastrophic with variations in between. Mani will help us look at the various biases, their impact and means to mitigate or avoid them for more predictable and successful projects. This, again, is based on his experience.
