Empowered Decision Making
Decision making is often slow, disempowering, and ineffective. And decision making directly impacts your speed, innovation, and employee engagement.
We’ll help you make faster, higher quality, and more inclusive decisions by building and embedding a custom set of mindsets, practices, and resources to define decisions, identify decision-makers, hear and integrate different perspectives, and clearly communicate to stakeholders.
We’ve supported leaders and teams from across industries to improve decision-making and drive speed, innovation, and inclusion. We’ve seen when employees learn better decision making practices, the organization reduces bureaucracy, empowers frontline team members, and better navigates uncertainty.
Autodesk committed to improving decision making and employee engagement after pulse surveys consistently showed low scores on the question “Overall, I’m satisfied with how decisions are made at Autodesk.” The culture team identified a direct link between scores on this question and overall engagement results.
Autodesk partnered with us to design and launch an Empowered Decision Makers sprint. We worked with the Global Head of Culture, and with the endorsement and active participation of the CEO, the organization quickly embraced new decision making practices. We offered a mix of live virtual workshops, a virtual instructor led training (VILT), and embedded meeting facilitation. Beginning with the top 200 senior leaders, we trained all managers on a decision making playbook and used the practices to accelerate more inclusive and clear decisions.
