By Ed Hreljac, Partner, ProcessPower Solutions Inc.
As promised, below are our 5 Bonus Benefits of Adopting a Disciplined Decision-making process. This is a continuation of our 2-part series Disciplined Decision-Making for Every Organization and Disciplined Decision-Making for Every Organization…Continued.
1. TIME SAVINGS
The disciplined decision-making process may seem to be rigorous for some, however time is saved by not tending to go in circles and re-inventing the process steps each time. Instead, time can be spent on resolving the different points of view rather than re-hashing items where there is already agreement.
2. INCREASED QUALITY
The process can be continually improved when you have a well-documented process in the first place. It is hard to argue that a strong process won’t consistently produce better results in the long-run.
3. FOCUS ON THE CONTENT
A disciplined decision-making process will allow participants to concentrate on relevant and only relevant information and judgments, rather than spending valuable time disputing or doubting the way the decision is being made.
4. KNOWLEDGE SHARING AND EDUCATION
After a disciplined decision-making process takes place, participants that are new to the subject area or the organization will often comment on how valuable the process was and how much was learned.
5. QUICK ITERATIONS
A disciplined decision-making process can be used for quick iterations as well, it doesn’t have to be a full-blown formal process. Employing a specific process helps to determine the scope of the business case needed in order to get to the point of being able to make a decision.
Why adopt a decision-making software solution for your organization?
For most familiar everyday problems, decisions based on intuition can produce acceptable results because they involve few objectives and only one or two decision-makers. In business and government environments decisions are more complex involving multiple objectives, several decision-makers, and are subject to external review. If you find yourself in this situation often, considering a software solution, may be in your best interest. Out clients have employed such a solution across many business applications, these include:
- Project Portfolio Management
- Vendor Selection
- Strategic Planning
- Market Research
- Performance Management
- Risk Assessment
Our web-based collaborative decision-making tool will not only assist your organization in the prioritization and selection of your alternatives, but it will also provide a transparent and accountable way to do so.
