Just as people are all different, so are our ways of making decisions. Personal development guru, Stephen Covey, once famously said: “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
Most executives think that the task of decision making is just a singular event that occurs at a particular point of time. But this is not the case. In reality, decision making is a process fraught with power plays, personal nuances, politics, and institutional antiquity. Leaders who identify this make a far better decision than those who persevere in the fantasy that decision-making instance is something that they control solely.
However, some decision-making procedures are far more effective than others. Here are just some of the things that you stand to gain by taking this service from Human Lab:
Typically, we gather information from our own consultant networks, the web, and from primary sources using e-surveys, interviews, focus groups and other participatory tools. We analyze the data according to the terms of reference, employing both statistical and qualitative methods.
Where appropriate, we engage stakeholders in a validation round, using structured conversations, historical timelines or ranking exercises.
Finally, we document findings, conclusions and recommendations to enable the next round of decision-making and action.
