How to Develop Effective Decision Making

A disciplined approach to making decisions is necessary for leaders to develop sound decision making habits among their teams. It involves ensuring the right problem is addressed, all relevant factors are considered, and all stakeholders are involved.

Rapid execution comes in part from clear knowledge of who is doing what, which we can establish through "decision space." Decision space shows up in three ways: boundary rules, critical information requirements, and prioritization. Watch below to understand how to establish decisions spaces in your team​.
