Top 10 Benefits of Adopting Disciplined Decision-making (Pt. 1 of 2)
Disciplined Decision-Making For Every Organization
“Today’s business environment = More variables + More information + More stakeholders + More of everything – except time and money. Adopting a disciplined decision-making process within your organization can provide benefits beyond reliable resource allocation and boardroom consensus.”
Adopting a disciplined decision-making process offers many benefits to your organization as a whole and with organizational buy-in and appropriate understanding it can be widely employed across many business units and functions. Below are the first 5 of our top 10 Benefits that disciplined decision-making will bring to your organization. The benefits are in no particular order.
All organizations strive for increased transparency. When the decision process can easily be deconstructed and audited, greater transparency across multiple stakeholders groups can be reached.
Accountability is becoming more and more important as decisions continue to affect multiple stakeholders groups including partners and clients. Keeping a record of judgments from each decision group and from each participant can assist in preserving accountability.
Alignment within an organization whether it be public or private is paramount. When decision results can be shown to be aligned with objectives within and across an organization, sounder decisions will be made.
Complexity is very rarely desired within an organizational setting. Unfortunately, complex decisions commonly exist. These can be easily managed with a simple yet rigorous process, eliminating the need for greater explanation and increasing the simplicity of the entire process.
When making a decision there is a great importance placed on open communication throughout the process. Employing a disciplined process allows for all decision factors to be clearly understood by the various stakeholder groups involved and gives rise to open lines of communication.
Tune in next week for the last 5 of our Top 10 Benefits that Disciplined Decision-making will bring to your organization.
