Getting Clarity on Decision Making by Creating a Decision Matrix

This process helps you and your team get clear on how key decisions will be made in the organization. At the end of the meeting, you will have a documented Decision Matrix listing types of decisions and how your team intends to handle each one going forward. Teams that use a Decision Matrix experience increased accountability, operational clarity, and decision velocity. Use this meeting agenda template to get started.
