“If the people who make the decisions are the people who will also bear the consequences of those decisions, perhaps better decisions will result.”

John Abrams, from The Company We Keep: Reinventing Small Business for People, Community and Place

This quote needs to be framed and placed in a prominent spot in every office. Many organizations suffer from bad decisions. Many people use the “We have always done it this way” form of management and decision-making. Many businesses have failed due to bad decisions. How does your organization handle decision-making?

What level of management makes the decisions? Does the decision-maker have the knowledge and experience to make the decisions? Does the decision-maker know how the operations work? Do workers, at a minimum, have input in the decision-making process? Take a look at your organization’s decision-making process and answer these questions.

Better decisions lead to better results. Better results lead to success. Be successful!
