Decisions that matter
And how to make them better
Many organizations understand they need to improve the quality of decisions that matter. Whether they are actually able to do anything about it is largely in the hands of two people: The CFO and the CIO.
Individuals and groups tasked with making decisions are often not able to self-correct for their biases.
On some level, making bad decisions is unavoidable. No one can always be right. But leading companies tend to make fewer bad decisions, especially when it comes to those that can drive or destroy significant value - decisions that matter.
Decision-making is a distributed function involving lots of different people throughout the organizational hierarchy. But two individuals in particular often have specific responsibilities for helping their organizations get better at making decisions: CFOs and CIOs.
