Our Default Organizational Decision-making Model Is Flawed. Here’s an Awesome Alternative!

"My organization Rainier Valley Corps has been experimenting with a decision-making model called the Advice Process. I want to elaborate on it a little as an ED who was used to being the ultimate decision-maker who is now not making many decisions at all at his organization and who is actually very happy about it.

"...whoever is closest to the issue area is the person who makes the decision, provided they do two things: Check in with people who will be affected by their decision, and check in with people who may have information and advice that might help them make the best decision."
