People were thrown out of their seats and banged their heads on the plane ceiling. Fortunately, the pilot regained control of the plane and we managed to land safely. Once on the ground, the airline announced that we had encountered “clear air turbulence” and there was no way to predict or avoid it. I knew, however, that the pilot had made a mistake; he had turned left and gone into a cloud (not clear air), where turbulence is more likely to be found. When we exited the plane, I saw the pilot. He looked like he was about sixteen years old.

They know what cases an expert or nonexpert needs to be aware of at the most common decision-making points. In this way, they make it likely that the customer service representative will have access to or be reminded of the right case at the right time to help make a good decision. Even when process steps and goals aren’t clear, case-based reasoning provides benefits. For instance, an organization may be launching its first group of cross-functional teams. They have never had this type of team before and no one in the company has stories about how to gauge their success.

If organizations can turn ten illogical decision makers into ten casebased ones, they will see a gain in more effective service, policies, processes, and whatever else these managers are responsible for.
