A study in what "Bad Equilibrium" looks like in an organization.  Borrowing concepts from the fields of study of financial and economic dislocation (discontinuities), cognitive phscology and game theory.  What if we cross pollinate ideas from other disciplines to help us understand and recognize systemic organizational issues in what Andrew Sahfer calls a "Pareto Inefficient Nash Equilibrium" (I will explain this in the session).  Once identified, look to capitalize on these dislocation gaps to create competitive organizational performance.  As a bonus, we will be using some examples from Micheal Lewis' Moneyball to show how a famous "Bad Equilibrium" in baseball was used by a small few to change the game forever.
