When a problem is correctly diagnosed, then the best decision becomes clear. If the understanding of the issue to be addressed is faulty, then the decision will not address it properly. We are diagnosticians, and use the 7 Words System to identify issues correctly and to consider all factors and options available.
The 7 aspects of Decisions
Definition of problem - NO - What to decide and who decides it
Collation of information - HELLO - Assessment and proposed decision
Introspection - THANKS - Congruency test between corporate values and personal values
Seeding change - GOODBYE - Announcement and delegation
Intention - PLEASE - Actions planned to move unreservedly towards a new future
Opposition - SORRY - Dealing completely with the objections arising
Negotiation - YES - Adaptation, modification, acceptance
A 7 Words Decision Tool is under development that will facilitate the process of decision making so that a manager can easily operate both right brain and left brain intelligence methods throughout the process.
We believe it is necessary to take into account 7 factors -
legal and moral, and
each having its own relative worth to be taken into account by weighting.
Without this tool, most managers find three too many to consider fully.
