Decision Principles

Decision Principles enable leaders to empower effective decisions, balancing alignment with autonomy


Future-focused firms must think differently about decisions and address the tension between autonomy and alignment. Modern organizations can achieve alignment and autonomy by developing principles for empowered decision-making across a network.

With Decision Principles in place, leaders can let go without losing control and add structure without losing speed.
