Hi! My name is Krishna Rupanagunta. I write about the art and science of decision making: from the huge opportunity that AI presents in the Enterprise world (my day job) to the endlessly fascinating complexities of the human brain and what that means to how we as individuals and societies make choices, big and small.

I will share my reading list and whenever I can, write up my review of the book as well. And if you are up for a book discussion, you can always reach out to me.
I would love to hear from you – feel free to leave a review/comments on my posts, and if you do want to go beyond that, my email: email@example.com.

We often put that down to intellectual laziness – but I wonder, is there more to it? While most organizations have some problem solving methodology or the other, and some teams in these… Continue Reading →
Last week, I talked about Complex systems and our limits to understanding. And when we do find ourselves in such situations, we are prone to fill the gaps or work through our limits of understanding with stories. Stories by themselves are not wrong – in fact, we are probably the only species on the planet… Continue Reading →
