LP20 Encouraging Best Decision-Making
when a Leadership Practice is not present or working in your organization...
you will not be able to BEST organize your organization
Encouraging best decision-making fosters decision-making compatible with the interests of the organization. It ensures that management uses best decision-making to lead and direct the organization. It educates and trains Associates about the principles driving the organization. This important process asks and enables Associates to take responsibility for making best decisions and participation in the process is supported by the organizational rewards systems.
Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has defined 29 Leadership Practices (LP) that are essential to a successful organization.
Clearly, competitive advantage is gained when an organization is aligned for success.
The 29 Leadership Practices are the primary "indicators of interest" we use when diagnosing an organization.
When we do an organizational assessment, we know that the absence of the Leadership Practice Encouraging Best Decision-Making could affect one or more of the 12 Holonomic Processes (HP):
HP3. Ensuring Best Decision-Making
HP6. Integrating Associate Selection, Development and Flow with the Strategic Direction
HP8. Ensuring Healthy Problem Solving throughout the Organization
The 12 Holonomic Processes are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC) are achieved, so the above Holonomic Processes problems could affect:
DOC1. Clarity of Direction
DOC2. Clarity of Structures
DOC5. Results Oriented Problem Solving
DOC6. Associates Are Assets and Resources

Remember that this "snapshot" is a preliminary assessment only, designed to illustrate areas where you might have problems.
A full on-line assessment probes in a deeper and more complex manner and provides specific insight and suggestions.
The Organizational Diagnostic Survey On-Line (ODS-OL) we use is the most advanced working technology for assessing organizations and its leadership practices. ODS-OL is based on multiple sources of information. ODS-OL does more than compile and analyze data: ODS-OL will derive conclusions about the results of the assessment and then derive recommendations based on these conclusions.
Use our ASK THE EXPERT form to contact Don Schwerzler - to learn how your organization can use ODS-OL to perfect the design and function of your organization.
