How Effective is Your Team at Consistently Making the Right Decisions?

Find out by running a Decision Performance Audit.

What are Decision Performance Audits?

Companies face hundreds of decisions every day, and their ability to sort through them and find the right answer is directly connected to their performance. A large multinational organization came to me to level up its decision-making. They understood that consistently making the right decisions was one of the best levers for long-term growth. Their executive team was familiar with concepts from the world of decision science, but they wanted an expert to identify opportunities for improvement.

I worked with their team for thirty days and saw them make decisions in real-time. He was able to diagnose the patterns leading to the wrong decisions and how the organization could improve its collective and individual decisions. I also helped them understand how to ensure everyone in the organization can make decisions even if they aren’t in leadership positions. At the end of the audit, the organization had a clear plan that they could implement to take their decision-making to the next level.

The Decision Performance Audit will take a deep look at your organization’s decision-making process and offer recommendations for improving it. Whether you’re just getting started with improving your decision-making or you have mature decision capabilities, you can benefit from a strategic review by a decision expert. 

Why It Matters

Everything that happens—or doesn’t happen—within companies can be boiled down to a decision. The best organizations understand that effective decision-making is a crucial skill everyone needs to master for long-term success.

Program Options

Option 1: Quick

A rapid assessment of the current performance of your decision-making and how you could improve it to drive dramatically higher profits and revenue. I will work with one of your teams, e.g., marketing, and look at how this team makes decisions right now. I will look at the seven pillars of decisions and offer recommendations for improving them. The audit involves a combination of interviews, research, and access to relevant documents/information. Option one happens remotely and requires 21 days.

Option 2: Comprehensive

Everything in option one plus an in-depth assessment of how multiple teams are making decisions and how to minimize errors. I will also examine how these teams work together and what opportunities exist to improve their performance. The audit involves a combination of interviews, research, and access to relevant documents/information. Option two can be run remotely or in-person and requires 30 days.

Option 3: Immersive

Everything in options one and two plus a complete assessment of how your company could be making better and more profitable decisions. I will work with your management team and key customers to understand the impact of your decisions. This is a complete look at how your organization can become more data-driven and systematically make better decisions with data. The audit involves a combination of interviews, research, and access to relevant documents/information. Option three can be run remotely or in-person and requires 30 days.

How It Works

The Decision Performance Audit takes 30 days from start to finish. The audit can be run remotely or in person at your office. Here’s the plan that we will follow together.

  1. Your team will provide access to any relevant software tools, reports, dashboards, and internal documents before the start of the audit.
  2. We will schedule discovery meetings or calls with all the relevant individuals and teams. We will work together to create a schedule that minimizes disruption to your current operation.
  3. If necessary, we will go through secondary meetings or calls.
  4. I will present my findings and recommendations to all relevant stakeholders.
