Decisions, decisions

I am currently reading The Decision Book. It sets out fifty models for decision-making alongside some historic context to each model. I’m reading one a day – a bit like Thought for the Day.

The Decision Book even has something of interest to say about old and familiar favourites like the SWOT model of Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats. The SWOT section includes a quote from Margaret J. Wheatley relevant to our uncertain times:

The things we fear most in organisations – fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances – are he primary sources of creativity.
