donhornsby's curator insight, June 5, 9:01 AM

(From the article): Any strategy or plan is only as good as people’s relationship with it. When you create a genuine environment of accountability it compels people at all levels to establish a powerful relationship to their company or team’s strategy or plan.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 28, 9:56 AM

(From the article): Your teams are freed to focus on each element of this rational decision-making model and identify gaps in the quality of a decision. Instead of sticking to biases or getting mired in politics, people work to fill those gaps, with analytics providing a clear line of sight to the most value. Further, by satisfying all six elements of DQ, companies can recognize the quality of a decision as they make it, not just in hindsight. The result: far fewer failed strategies, far less wasted capital in investment decisions, and — to everyone’s great relief — fewer blame games and witch hunts.


The hard truth is we all leave a lot of value on the table – value that we could seize with better decisions. Doing so requires an organization-wide framework for making them.

Expressworks International's curator insight, May 29, 12:47 PM

Use of trusted third parties as honest brokers may help companies ensure that confirmation bias isn't part of the decision making process.
