One of the things we’ve learned over the years is how to be smartly strategic about decision making.
We made a decision long ago that we would follow a system when making any decisions for the company, and recently found it helped us avoid making a wrong decision. We determined when making decisions, the order of importance will always be:
- What’s best for the business?
- What’s best for the office?
- What’s best for the department?
- What’s best for the individual?
In that order.
Recently we were deciding to embark on an expanded piece of business and it would have required a team member to move and potentially grow that department. Using our prioritization decision, we determined that although it would be great for the office, department and individual, for the overall business it was the wrong move at this time.
It was expensive, had a high level of risk and didn’t have solid data to back up a decision to go down this road.
Knowing the business always comes first will continue to make our choices easy.
