View another group:

The Executive Office is comprised of the following organizational units reporting directly to the President and First Vice President:

Applied Critical Thinking
Meg McConnell, Senior Vice President
  • ACT leverages insights from cognitive science and complex systems theory to raise awareness of the ways that many cognitive and collaborative practices fail us under conditions of complexity and uncertainty and of the corresponding need for a culture of intellectual humility.
  • ACT looks to fields such as intelligence analysis, design, climate science and medicine for more effective practices, and through experimentation and iteration, adapts these practices to central banking.
  • ACT infuses these new ways of working into the broader organization by having individuals and teams apply them to core aspects of the work of central banking--being forward-looking, maintaining a wide field-of-view, responding to ambiguous threats and unexpected events, and dealing with intractable problems--in safe-to-fail environments.
