Individuals, teams and organizations make decisions everyday intended to improve performance. But, too often, they rush into finding the solution before defining the problem. This book contains seven self-assessments designed to help you define the issue of “what to accomplish” before deciding “how to accomplish it.” With these seven assessments, you can collect, analyze and interpret the data necessary to confirm your suspicions before making recommendations.
