“Rather than offering us yet another series of case studies or a list of best practices that have been covered to death, Olivier Zara offers us a real model for achieving decision-making excellence and thus managing decision-making risks in complex situations.” Arnaud Brouxel, ex-Safran & Thales, Risk Management Expert
“A bible to read for all transformation agents and leaders!” Jérôme Lavancier, Program Director Agile@Scale Transformation Coordination at Société Générale
“This book is a treasure trove of explanations on the causes of failure in business transformation projects and programs. The Decision-Making Excellence Manifesto should not be included as an appendix to this book, but on the syllabus of all management schools!” Charles Escoula, Project Manager at AVEM-group
Do you make brilliant decisions very quickly, but the execution of your decisions turns into a nightmare: loss of time, trust and agility? Do you watch the wheel of your transformation turn over and over feeling as if nothing ever changes? Then it's time to start your Dream-olution by implementing decision-making excellence. This will require abandoning the paradigm of the heroic and omniscient chief who thinks and the employees who execute. Thus, you will be able to develop the agility of your decision-making processes.
Successfully implemented for more than ten years in large companies, decision-making excellence is a powerful approach to managing decision-making risks in a complex and uncertain environment: numerous stakeholders and expertise to be synergized in shorter and shorter timeframes.
Decision-making excellence is at the service of operational excellence. It avoids execution problems by integrating everyone's expertise in the co-construction of a decision that is both flexible and robust. This creates a sustainable collective engagement, because the team runs very fast... in the right direction!
