Knowledge Centre

Behavioral Economics is an interdisciplinary science blending psychology, economics, and neuroscience that yields empirical insights into human behavior and decision making, paving the way for applied interventions that can change behavior and improve decisions.

All organizations need to change behavior, whether their own or others’. Behavioral Economics helps answer the question “how do I best influence behavior?” It is, however, one thing to read books like Predictably Irrational but another to effectively apply their insights. Our expertise and knowledge can help you navigate the complexities of the science and bring BE to life in your organization.
