Advice processA simple tool for group decision makingMaking decisions with other people can be slow, expensive and emotionally draining, while coordinating team member schedules can be time-consuming. At the same time, making decisions without involving others can turn out to be equally — if not more — expensive and stressful, and can cause resentment amongst those who were not included.Though some decisions can technically be made quicker when bosses make the call for themselves, there are more downsides to this approach.

This means they need to be optimized for coherence. Coherence refers to a particular dispositional state of a team, where the complex feed loops between trust, power and action thresholds are optimized for flow (see A Source Code for Team Flow). The degree of power asymmetry in the system is a crucial function of team flow. Power asymmetry in turn is a function of information flows and can be regulated by designing resilience through sensemaking up-hierarchies.I introduced the notion of a sensemaking up-hierarchy in my …
