Social Decision Making Quality is a process needed in a complex world

This morning you might’ve woken up to learn that the rules of the game have changed – once again. The world is complex, and going autopilot on decision making means trusting that your stakeholders, customers and competitors are playing by the rules of yesterday. So, you have your experience and guts, you’re smart and observing your field. But how can you be sure your decision making is high-quality? You'll need a system for it. A...

There’s no “one-size-fits-all” method when bringing self-management to workplace

At work 8 A.M. I check what I have at hand and collect my thoughts. Sharply at 8.15 the team gathers. We share what’s under process, what’s completed, and what needs to be done. No more than a couple of minutes per person needed. This is follow-up.  We have earlier decided what will be executed and when. There’s no superior to coordinate us. We’re self-organized. The administrative superior will only take care of legal matters....

Getting hold of 200 partners for decision making

Watch the video. ACME Attorneys has a great opportunity to catch a big fish. A lawyer from another firm would be ready to join ACME Attorneys. But they are not the only one trying to attract the famous lawyer in the cyber security area. Now it's all about swiftly making the decision among the 200 partners and once the decision is made negotiate the final deal with the partner candidate. It seems like an impossible job to...

Why should we even bother about documenting decisions?

Last week we took a look at why it’s difficult to document decisions. But why should we actually care? What’s done is done isn’t it? Well partially. If we would live in a world where things are decided once and then execute themselves by themselves that would be the case but in reality it’s a little different. Let’s start by looking at how decisions are documented. Traditionally we make decisions somewhere between emails and meetings and if...

The challenge to document and track decisions

How much of your time at work do you spend waiting on decisions, how often did you not know anymore what was decided in which context by whom? Happens, right? It’s typical for our modern work day. A day in which we use a myriad of technological advances and still face the digital disconnectivity more than ever. The reason for this is that a lot of our work is about deciding and executing decisions but...

If you treasure it measure it!

Who of our readers plays tennis? Well probably not that much anymore since tennis is a sport of the 80s. But at the same time some of us Fingertippers (*cough, our founder, *cough) are children of the 80s and like to play this wonderful racket sport in their free time. You probably wonder what decisions and tennis have in common or if you have arrived at the wrong website. But fear not, this is still Fingertip...
