    June 15, 1916 – February 9, 2001

    Economics Nobel laureate and Turing Award recipient Herbert A. Simon is best known for his work in decision-making. Specifically, he came up with three stages of Rational Decision Making that laid the groundwork for his life's work. The stages are:

    Intelligence
    Design
    Choice

    Make a lot of sense, doesn't it? First we gather intelligence, then we design the solution, and then we choose the right path to follow... That's not always the case, however. Sometimes you rush and do design last.

    Intelligence
    Choice
    Design

    This is a not ideal, but at least better than the complete waste of time that is starting with design...

    Design
    Intelligence
    Choice

    It can even get worse:

    Choice
    Intelligence
    Design

    This is what happens when you get people involved who think they know everything. And then some skip stages:

    Choice
    Intelligence
    Design

    Oomph. This is almost the pits.

    Intelligence
    Design
    Choice

    Sigh. No, we're not referring to anything specific, why do you ask?

    Verdict: Jew.
