Busy with Buzzwords: Decisions
Over the years, I've found that idea drilled into my head repeatedly by managers, professors and from personal observation. It especially resonates now.
- The most successful organizations are those that are likely to empower the most people to make decisions, and hire people that want to make them.
- In general, the more decisions that are made the better (i.e. 100 quick decisions made with 90 good ones and 10 bad ones are better than just 10 good carefully thought-out good decisions.)
- Making a lot of decisions is only good, if people are willing to admit that they will sometimes make bad ones and leave room to correct those.
