Have your thought to yourself...
- What is going on?
- Why did this happen?
- What course of actions do we need to take?
- What are the risks/opportunities?
Our ultimate goal in these complex situations is to make the best decisions that balance risks and benefits. What are the processes and systems that can help us yield the desired results consistently?
