What’s the story behind great decisions? Is decision-making the responsibility of one leader or should it rest on the shoulders of the collective team?In Judgment Calls, authors Tom Davenport and Brooke Manville share twelve stories of organizations that have successfully tapped the diverse perspectives and deep knowledge of their people to build an organizational decision-making capability—a competence they say can make the difference between success and failure. We know great decisions depend on judgment calls; and in today’s fast-moving world, there’s more pressure than ever to make quicker decisions to keep the organization moving at the speed of business. But the knowledge of one person or one leader isn’t always sufficient. So how can you set up a model that taps the collective judgment of a group so that the right decisions are made, and the company profits?Through the stories in Judgment Calls, the authors—seasoned management thinkers and advisors—make the case for the wisdom of organizations and provide guidance for making better use of it. Each chapter is an engaging tale of one dilemma and how it was solved, which brings into high relief one key to collective judgment. Individually the stories inspire and instruct; together they add up to a model for building an organizational capacity. You’ve read The Wisdom of Crowds. Now read Judgment Calls. You, and your organization, will benefit.

Influential

To get the most out of this book the reader has to be prepared to apply themselves. I would say this is an excellent book, and one that is well-written. The authors employ the use of stories and case-studies to illustrate their points, which personally I like. But this approach is less prescriptive and more interactive, meaning the reader really has to pay attention and work with the anecdote to extract the most fruitful message. For me this works better than bullet-point force feeding as the reader is able to get inside the heads of the people in each of the situations and the aquired knowlege is longer-lasting. Read swiftly it makes for an interesting read; read carefully it is a rewarding tool for improving decision-making in your organisation.
