Document a clear decision-making process, roles, and decision-points to improve your team’s performance moving the strategy from start to finish.
Capture decision-making, the third principle in this stage of teamwork, results in a strong starting point for a documented decision-making process and authorities for the strategy. The HET Decisions Map:
- Lays out the major gates that typical projects within a given strategy go through from idea to implementation, evaluation, and scale-up;
- Identifies the go/no-go decisions; and
- Clarifies roles and decision-making authorities for each stage and decision point.
This tool continues to evolve over time as more unanticipated decision points are reached, but having a solid starting point at the outset of the work will make future decision-making more predictable, efficient, transparent, and equitable.
