Brief judgments based on thin-slicing

Welcome to Thin-Slicing

Thin-slicing is a term used in psychology and philosophy to describe the ability to find patterns in events based only on “thin slices”, or narrow windows, of experience.

The term refers to the process of making very quick inferences about the state, characteristics or details of an individual or situation with minimal amounts of information.

Research has found that brief judgments based on thin-slicing are similar to those judgments based on much more information. Judgments based on thin-slicing can be as accurate, or even more so, than judgments based on much more information.

“In Lean-Agile, the thinner the slice is, the faster the learning cycle is! Contrast that to waterfall: the slices are too chunky/thick that the learning cycles are far in between relative to Lean Agile’s very often and many number of learning cycles! — Clarence Galapon
