Steven F. Wille, B.S.B.A., M.B.A., (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration) Most decisions are easy and have very little long term consequences. Other decisions are life changing and there is no going back.
Picking a technology platform is an example of a tough choice that locks you in for the long term.
Project managers often use a decision matrix with numerical score to make process objective and logical. This is essential, but not sufficient.
A swarm of 10,000 honeybees provides a model of how to make a life-changing decision by a network of intelligent beings. If they pick the wrong location for their next home, they won’t make it through the winter. If they don’t find a home within 3 days, they all die. Bees travel a 30 square mile area seeking out holes in trees and other objects, looking for the perfect home. They return to make a group decision.
We will look at the bee decision process, along with other ways to make a great decision using the collective intelligence of the people affected by the decision.
