Kurien et al., 2014
"Analysis paralysis" ... refers to over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation, or citing sources, so that a decision or action is never finally taken, resulting in paralyzing the outcome
problem of practice Defined:
Tools and processes are needed to assist the decision-making processes of individuals from being blocked through Analysis Paralysis.
Who is it for?
Customer decision making (Kurien et al., 2014)
Ecologists performing data analysis (Zuckerberg & Gibbs, 2008)
Business analysis and solution design (McSweeney, 2016)
Personal/life decisions (individual)
Product choice/purchasing decisions
The learning resource cannot be restricted to one group and should be more generalized in order to meet learner needs
What is being proposed?
overcoming analysis paralysis
Creating a resource to assist individuals who may find themselves caught in analysis paralysis
mixed media including a Video of no more than 6 mins length
quiz and practical exercise
sharable online mini course
The Next Steps
create a initial course
iterate based on feedback
Create an online mini-course, including video, a quiz and a downloadable resource
Obtain user feedback via questionnaires and interviews
Iterate based on the feedback received
Resources will be generalized to help a wide degree of learners
