Better decisions can save or make money for your company, and it is therefore essential to
- identify profitable opportunities that save money or make more money for your company
- prioritize efforts so that you get more results given the same resources
- execute improvement projects effectively
There are times in which we feel it is important to focus on the whole system and study its composition, structure, and interdependent relationships. This is why sometimes we choose to observe, research, and interpret organizational phenomena to increase our basic knowledge or to apply such information to practical problems.
At the same time, we also strive to reduce problems to their essential constituents, the ones that drive the greatest part of the improvable outcome. When we are successful, we then devise a deliberate strategy to change the most highly influential factors to achieve a desirable result.
