How do you identify and nurture people with potential?  How do you turn a bunch of talented individuals into a cohesive team? Where does decision-making science end and judgement begin? 

As a former Chief Selector of the England cricket team, Ed Smith has developed a unique framework for identifying and maximising talent, spotting team weaknesses, and communicating ideas that lead to stronger leadership, clearer judgements and, ultimately, improved performance.

At the RSA, he joins chief executive Andy Haldane to share insights from the very top flights of professional sport, arts and business, and to argue that putting the human back into decision-making is essential to navigating a fast-changing and increasingly data-reliant world, whatever the field.
