What are 'gut' decisions costing your organization?

Complex change runs on millions of decisions. 
So when your teams lack the insights they need to make them, they are forced to rely on incomplete data and best guesses.
Execution slows to a crawl as confusion grows over which decisions to trust.
And as deadlines approach, leadership is forced to choose between putting the results or the change it needs on hold.
How long can your organization afford to make decisions this way? 

  • Does your org have a history of slow and/or poor decisions?
  • Are your teams risk-averse?
  • Are decisions stymied by too much and/or too little communication?
  • Is there an absence of new, innovative ideas?
  • Does confusion over who is responsible for what bring progress to a halt?

Decision Making Solutions

Decision Space

Create an ecosystem that streamlines the best moves. 

Linear decision-making cannot keep up with the modern speed of change. Decision Space solutions help leaders build non-linear decision-making systems that scale on demand. 

 

How does Decision space Define Decision making authority?
  • Sets clear expectations, reducing ambiguity and removing barriers.
  • Enables leaders to take an “eyes on, hands off” approach​.
  • Empowers decision makers closest to the problem to operate freely, quickly, and efficiently​.

Your organization’s success depends on its decision making abilities. Set your team up to execute your strategy, act decisively, and achieve your goals.

RED TEAM

Bake critical thinking into critical decisions. 

Human tics like bias and risk aversion will sabotage good decisions if you let them. Red Team programs teach teams how to protect their conclusions and make smarter moves.  

 

WHY SHOULD YOUR TEAMS DO A RED TEAMING PROGRAM?
  • Pressure test conclusions before they become big decisions. 
  • Give your teams the skills to pressure-test their decision-making going forward.
  • Align risk tolerance––and decision-making––with the org's strategy.

Most organizations do not build safeguards against bad conclusions into their decision-making. Let Red Teaming programs give your teams and org a decisive advantage.
