Furthermore, a McKinsey study revealed that executives estimate bad strategic decisions result in losses equivalent to 6% of annual revenues. These statistics highlight the critical importance of effective decision-making in the business world.

But who is making these decisions? Often, it’s top-notch, educated professionals. So, how do they make such grave mistakes, and can Generative AI significantly change this?
