There is a huge need for “change” , for “corporate excellence” , to tackle the world’s problems in a whole. But how? Absolutely NOT how we did “manage” it the last 120 years. LEAN, SixSigma, PDCA, AI, ERP, ….. all “tools” to “get on track” again. But which track ? The same? Preferably not I would say.

Excellence should be a mindset by default , and for many of us it is, in fact I cannot imagine somebody going to work in the morning saying “Let’s make as much trouble as possible” and yet…. How do we get into as much trouble as we do ? My answer is simple : Because we have poor (weak) decision making. And how is that possible? By information getting
filtered out through “subjective analyze”. In this blog I will be posting some comments on (global and local) issues, which could be a result of poor decision making, just for the sake of showing that this is a universal problem in all industries and through all categories or levels of decision takers.

With the anniversary in sight I could not go arround a textbook example of what and how things could go wrong when stacking poor decisions. The preception of it being unsinkable, bad riveting, number of liferafts,attacting the record of crossing the ocean, etc ...  basicly, there where two main proceses that went wrong: the decisions in designing and the decisions in execution. (with the designing being the worst, as far as I can take a position..)
