Decision Making

If you want the most effective and efficient decision-making process, require that anyone who wants to discuss an issue write it up, along with the desired solution, ahead of time.

The hard way: Write an extraordinarily thorough analysis from the get-go.

The easy way: Write a draft, circulate it to the meeting participants before the meeting, and invite comments and questions. 

This method, though time-consuming for the sponsor, yields extraordinarily thoughtful decisions in a very short amount of time.
