The buzz: Thinking. Increasingly, in-demand jobs require proficiency in critical thinking. Without it, how can a company validate the information it uses for decision making? Think about it. The experts speak. Dr. Mark Battersby, Professor: “Learning to think more critically involves developing practices that lead to more carefully thought-out, evidence-based decisions and judgments.” Dr. Sharon Bailin, Professor: “Critical thinkers are more committed to the process of being reasonable than to any particular view or position.” Shirley Calla, Masters Student: “I think the task of figuring out how to combine the best of conscious deliberation and instinctive judgment is one of the greatest challenges of our time” (Malcolm Gladwell). Emily Mui, SAP: “In this age of information overload and demand for instant response and gratification, it’s even more important to have good critical thinking skills so you can make good decisions.”
