Tom Davenport on Improving Management Decisions

Portals and KM

Tom concludes with the idea that one of the simplest approaches to improving micro-decisions is to give those who make them a checklist to make sure they didn't forget any key steps or issues.

In the mid 80s, I was involved in developing a checklist for loan officers of a major US bank that recently got a lot of bailout money.

In that sense Ton’s experience with using self reflection survey is inspiring, because it can be something at a sweet spot between a checklist (not deep enough) and a long story (doesn’t happen due to time/energy constraints). When I stopped working, one of the things I wanted was about doing more non-digital, observable things. In other words – living a life that could be more easily shared with children, because they can observe and participate.
