Core Insights podcast host Trevor Barnes is joined by award-winning author Nick Chater, Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School, and Ed Gardiner, Director at Innovation firm Cogco, which uses behavioural science, data science and design to build new products and services.
The pair reveal how research from behavioural science can be applied to many different businesses, from marketing agencies to finance companies. Gardiner and Professor Chater delve into how 'nudges' and robust findings about human behaviour can be used to improve an organisation's performance, from operational efficiency to boosting sales.
Professor Chater is author of The Mind is Flat - The illusion of mental depth and the improvised mind and The Language Game - How improvisation created language and changed the world.
