ROGERS AND BLENKO: THE RAPID DECISION-MAKING MODEL
Use this to remind you of the need for the roles of all those involved in the decision-making process to be clearly specified.
Confusion and uncertainty are the enemies of good decision making. If two people believe that they are responsible for a specific decision you have a problem leading to delays, arguments and turf wars. Paul Rogers and Marcia Blenko’s RAPID Decision-Making Model aims to avoid such difficulties by identifying the specific roles that need to be allocated to named individuals. To do this they ask ‘Who has the D?’ Meaning who is responsible for specific areas of the decision-making process.
