To be successful, companies must effectively prioritize their near-term business goals with addressing longer-term strategic issues. Executives understand that strategic issues can be devastating if disregarded, but there is a perception that their solution requires considerable time and resources. The daunting prospect of assembling a multidisciplinary team of experts from the myriad business functions required for a comprehensive analysis often leads executives to deprioritize strategic decision-making. This does not need to be the case. With the right tools, long-term issues can be addressed without hampering a company’s success in today’s fast-paced business environment.

This book is a focused, practical guide introducing the Lean Strategic Decision Model (LSDM). LSDM is designed to improve strategic decision effectiveness and efficiency using a simple 9-step process. The author explores many of the personal and group barriers to effective strategic decision-making and demonstrates how the LSDM overcomes them. Learn how to implement a simple process to improve your company’s strategic decision-making.
