Decision Making Lifecycle

Decision making is not only about the action of making a decision, but rather the entire process; Draft, Share, Propose & Decide, Execute, Evaluate, Close. From describing the decision all the way to closing it, all that is relevant is included in the life cycle. The life cycle of a decision is the basis for better decision making quality.

Prepare your reasoning behind a decision by drafting your proposal

Draft the decision in peace. Make compelling background preparation to ensure people will be properly informed, when you invite them to collaborate. Explain, what decision you are making and why. Provide contextual information and the process you wish to use for making the eventual decision.

Involve the relevant stakeholders in the share phase

Share decision details with the people you want to get input from. Provoke discussion, ask questions and collaborate to collect information and opinions relevant for the decision.

Once you have enough input, you are ready to propose!

After collecting the valuable input and having the discussions, you are ready to propose a decision. Try to be clear what is now being decided and what concrete actions that entails. Keep it simple enough and also define evaluation criteria. This will now prompt the stakeholders to support or oppose the suggestion. If you get opposition, make sure to improve on your proposal with more discussion and propose again.

Make the final decision.

After shared discussions and a proposal gathering support from others, you are ready to decide. This secures that a decision has now officially been made, and the tasks related are binding. This sets the wheels in motion – get ready to execute!

Time for actionable execution.

This phase is where the talking turns into doing. The best possible decision with the available resources has been made and it’s execution time. Tasks and and activities should be done in a timely manner, with excellence, while keeping others up to date with Fingertip.

Reflection is the basis for learning.

After all is said and done, you should consider, how the decision lifecycle progressed. Evaluate the process and the decision. Do you know something now that you didn’t know then that would have impacted the decision? Was the process open and timely? Was the decision relevant? What were the results of the decision? All this helps you make better decisions in the future.

Decision archive is an asset

Once you have completed the cycle, you can retire the decision. This archives the decision, so it doesn’t appear in channels and workflows, but you can still find it to reflect and use as a starting point for future decisions. Your decision archive is a fantastic way to look back and understand phases your company has gone through. Don’t forget to use it!
