Which system is best for the situation?

There are four major decision making systems (techniques) to chose from. Selecting the right one makes a big difference in the end result.

Here are some criteria:

  • Priority / Alignment with strategy / mission

  • Timing / Urgency

  • Personalities / Politics

  • Dependencies on team members for execution

  • VUCA (vulnerability uncertainty complexity ambiguity) of the problem

  • Availability of stakeholders and / or potential decision team members
