All organisations need to make decisions. Decisions are made everyday both tactically and strategically. The one trait we see in high performing organisations is their ability to make decisions at speed. They go from idea to done in double quick time and spend a lot less time than underperforming businesses, in pontificating on whether to make a decision.
