Who we are?
Those of us who work with Good Decision have a wide knowledge of development work, both at individual level and in supporting larger organizations in an international context.
We shape ways of working and project models in which the right amount of methodology for the task brings success. We help large organizations to acquire knowledge and understanding of value words and codes of conduct, by together creating game-like tools which increase commitment and clarity. In other words, we are brave enough to try new things and break with traditional ways of thinking. Through our way of working, positive energy is released in everyday situations.
Renewal, curiosity and visualization
Our theory that underlies our work is based on three key areas: renewal, curiosity and visualization.
Renewal – Renewal in small steps every day with continuous reflection, feedback and follow-up. It is more about renewing our attitudes to the world around us, the expectations of customers and co-workers, and less about doing completely new things.
Curiosity – We humans are fantastic and unique. We learn in many different ways and we can pass on knowledge from generation to generation. Our mission is to stimulate a thirst for knowledge in each person, to show what is possible so that their interest is aroused and their curiosity drives them to ask questions and, in turn, seek answers.
Visualization – Today we have great opportunities to communicate what we are experiencing and where we are heading, by using social media, shape and colour and lots of new materials which enhance our visual and emotional impressions. We are in a position to spark curiosity in a more fun way, as far as management directives such as vision, mission, values, policies and brand name are concerned.
The Story of Good Decision
During development work with a management team at a small manufacturing plant, Jens Sångberg (Good Decision) was also able to hold status meetings with the owner at regular intervals.
During these meetings it became clear that the owner was not pleased with how both managers and co-workers had acted in several situations which had recently arisen. After the somewhat frustrated owner had explained what had happened and why the person in question had made the mistake, Jens asked the customer, “What do you want your co-workers and managers to do then?”
After thinking for a little while he answered, “I want them to make good decisions!”
Everyone wants to be able to make good decisions. In order to succeed, we first need to understand what makes us and our organization work well. In an organization the key to this is called management directives. Our job is to make them apparent to everyone in their daily work. In management directives we find arguments for what we must prioritise and how we must act as co-workers and managers.
We have adopted this approach and developed a way of working in which everyone can have a say. Management directives form the basis of all decisions which are made and through which we solve all the challenges of the organization. At the same time, a method, a way of working, is established which enables co-workers and managers to increase efficiency and profitability.
