Applying the Many-to-Many decision-making model

  • Frame the challenge or problem as a question. "What must we do now to become number one in commercial lending?"
  • Carefully consider all the people who can meaningfully answer the question and involve many who will need to execute them.
  • Don't tell people what to explore in answering the question. Let them decide what they need to discuss to arrive at solutions. Spend ten percent together in collectively setting the agenda.
  • Appoint a few people to each agenda item, and a few to coach them on doing better.
  • Conduct two or three rounds of meetings on each agenda item. Intentionally build on insights, ideas, and conclusions in follow-up meetings.
