Projecting decision making as far ahead as possible and then filling in the blanks. This is about making sure the big decisions are recorded, tracked in time and space and laid out for EVERYONE to see. The importance and value of this is on several levels – it is about ensuring everyone can understand how their work contributes to decision making, it provide clarity for decision makers and allows thinking/analysis about the information requirements (thresholds) for making the actual decisions. There are several ways of achieving this clarity but the main thing is to be clear about where decision should be made (i.e. the governance level) and whether the series of decisions gets you to where you need to be (a clear end state).
