The Decision Loom
Bad decisions and bad decision-making systems
Decision-making has been one of the principal victims of ‘modern’ thinking. The ‘analytical’ approach has, of course, brought us vaccines, electricity and the internal combustion engine. But, in seeking to break things down into their component parts and improve the parts, governments and businesses continue to make some astonishingly bad decisions.
What’s more, many enterprises still pay close attention to ‘decisions’ whilst overlooking the bigger picture: the organizational system within which those decisions get made.
The Decision Loom: A Design for Interactive Decision-Making in Organizations sets out to change our ‘analytical’ habit and invites enterprises to consider the bigger picture. Author Vince Barabba explains an elegantly simple approach to making better decisions. He calls this approach ‘The Decision Loom’ and bases it on Systems Thinking, Design Thinking and Complexity Theory.
This book is a guide for any public, private, government or non-profit organization that needs to put in place a system for making better decisions. Its proposals and conclusions will be of immediate interest to anyone working in (or studying):
