The wrong people make the decision – too many have veto power, and too few the power to make things happen.
- Long decision meetings – few key decisions reached. Project teams become frustrated with ever-changing directions. Process breaks down as deadlines approach. Key information is never discussed due to meeting time constraints. Low quality decisions and lack of commitment.
- The wrong people on the decision committee. No clear process for reaching a decision when there is no consensus.
- Identify who needs to be on the decision committee, as decision makers, stakeholders, experts, and analysts. Clarify roles and the decision process before evaluating the decision options.
