During Upcoming Webinar, Henley-Putnam Professor Dr. Harry Nimon Will Explain Biases and Expectation Traps in Intelligence Education

Henley-Putnam University will host Dr. Harry Nimon during the next episode of the Strategic Security webinar series. On April 24th, 2013 at 1:00 PM, EDT, Dr. Nimon, former military officer and current Lead Technical Engineer for the Boeing Corporation’s Phantom Works Division, will present “The ROLE OF NEURO-PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDIES IN INTELLIGENCE EDUCATION.” Those interested in participating in the webinar should register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/321039626.

During the webinar, Dr. Nimon will provide an introduction into an aspect of cognition as it relates to education analysts and Intelligence Community (IC) personnel. IC training and educational focus has historically concentrated on analytical tools and processes, presentation skills, and target entity data, while ignoring the primary weak link in this chain - the analysts’ individual biases and expectation traps.

Sun Tzu said, "If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you are a fool and shall meet defeat in every battle." According to Dr. Nimon, “While we may know our own technological strengths, we do not know our own intellectual processes and eccentricities. Thus, we are potentially failing in the first half of the above proverb.”

The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge.
The Henley-Putnam webinar series, launched in 2009, was designed to bring the hands-on experience of former members of the CIA, Secret Service, FBI, and intelligence and law enforcement communities, both federal and local, to those seeking careers in Strategic Security. Past webinars are archived on the University’s site and accessible at http://www.henley-putnam.edu/student-resources/security-briefings.
The series is one of many career resources offered by Henley-Putnam University. In addition, the University’s mentoring program assigns degree students with a high-level faculty or expert mentor to support them in making career decisions. Through its online career portal, Henley-Putnam helps students research careers, explore university programs, prepare for a job search, locate employers and gain basic knowledge of the Strategic Security field.
