Making better decisions

There are lots of big decisions being taken at the moment. With the world moving at a rapid pace and new challenges arising on an almost daily basis, we need to move quickly and decisively if we’re to even survive, let alone thrive. But big decisions aren’t easy, especially when we have little information and even less time to think.

A good decision takes into account a number of factors. Most obviously, it considers the available data and other quantitative information. It also takes into account qualitative factors, such as the organisation’s strategic context and aspirations. I’d suggest that it also needs to be consistent with the organisation’s values. And finally, it needs to ‘feel’ right.

I’ve explored this topic in more detail in the Sockmonthly, my monthly newsletter, the latest issue of which has just landed in subscribers’ inboxes. You can read it here. And if you’d like to make sure you get the next issue as soon as it’s out, you can subscribe for free – just click the big red button below.

I’m trying to grow the audience for my newsletter and to generate a bit more of a community around it. So I’d love to welcome you as a subscriber. And if you find the Sockmonthly helpful and would like to recommend it to a friend or colleague, I’d be ever so grateful.
