An organization’s decisions are made by individuals. Why do some organizations make better decisions? How can you help your team make better decisions?
Making good decisions is a skill. And, like any skill, practice leads to improvement.
- Let your team make decisions. Guide them, describe the results you want, but empower them to make decisions.
- After a project is concluded, do a debriefing. Review the decisions made. In retrospect, which would have been made differently ans why?
- Allow and encourage corrections. If during a project a it becomes obvious a decision was not the correct one, change it. Start over if necessary. A delay is better than a failure.
