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.
Craig advises on strategic management and decision-making for owners. As compared to typical acronym-based mnemonics, the new framework uses easily recognizable symbols and a story-board to logically associates concepts and sequence. This helps long-term recall, since our minds easily associate information with symbols. A physical map representing the steps is an additional way to get people to role-play the decision while boosting creativity, enjoyment and effectiveness. Those concepts, or themes, then apply whether it is an individual, team or a cross-departmental organizational decision, spurring stakeholders to consider important questions for high value, high risk decisions.
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
