I propose that there are two key parameters that an organization needs to put in place to guide decision-making. The first is the organization’s clearly communicated strategy. This is defined by the difficult choices leadership has made that determine which decisions are “strategic” (and should be undertaken only by top management) and which decisions are “operational” (and can be undertaken by employees). The second parameter is the organization’s values and purpose. As long as these are ingrained in the organization’s DNA, they will help employees decide what actions support the purpose and values and what actions do not support them. This, in turn, will help them decide what to do themselves and what to refer to top management to decide.
