Reference #266: The First 90 Days
The decision-making process you choose to take must consider your business situation.
In startup or turnaround situations, problems tend to be technical rather than cultural and political. People may also be hungry for strong leadership. This incentivises a "consult and decide" approach.
Leaders in realignment and sustaining success situations often need to deal with strong, intact teams and cultural and political issues. These are typically best addressed with a "build consensus" approach to decision-making.
