Nimble Decision-Making with the D.A.I. Model

Making decisions in a timely fashion and at the right level in the business

In the new normal, being sluggish versus nimble in decision-making is a sure way to end up like the proverbial Dodo… extinct!

We are not talking here about major strategic decisions – these are few and far between. Rather, we are referring to the multitude of decisions businesses make throughout the year. The key is for these decisions to be made in a timely fashion and at the right level in the organization.

Interestingly, the most popular decision frameworks are not well suited to day-to-day, agile decision-making. However, a lesser-known model has proven ideal to drive nimbleness: the D.A.I. framework, where D stands for Decision maker; A for Advice givers; and I for Informed stakeholders.

In this highly dynamic and interactive presentation, Edmond will guide participants through a three-step exploration:

  1. What are the main symptoms of sluggish decision-making?
  2. What makes D.A.I. the best model for agile decision-making; and how does it work?
  3. What are the respective mindsets and behaviours to embrace depending on whether you are the D, A or I for a given decision?

Edmond will deliver this webinar with the passion, humour and engaging style that are his trademarks!
