Decision Free Solutions (DFS) is a new way to utilise all available expertise to achieve the goals you believe in.

DFS sets out to overcome the challenge of communication between experts and non-experts, and the challenge of hierarchical decision making

DFS is a generic, systemic approach to achieve desired outcomes with minimal resources by creating the conditions to maximally utilise expertise. DFS makes use of the observation of a range of an individual’s or organisation’s characteristics to predict their behaviour and performance.

DFS can be applied in Organisations, (Project) Management, Sales, Procurement, Lean, Birthing, … — in any field you care to think of.

The four steps of Decision Free Solutions - DICE:
Definition
Identification
Clarification
Execution
1
2
3
4

What needs to be achieved? In what conditions? In the Definition step this is made transparent and non-ambiguous for all who are involved.

What is needed to achieve the desired outcome against minimal risk? The right expert is able to tell you. In the Identification step this expert will be positively identified.

In the Clarification step the identified expert clarifies, using only easy-to-understand language, how the desired outcome will be achieved (the plan). Only once the plan is fully understood by all involved will it be approved for execution.

In the Execution step the approved plan will be executed and the expert will inform on plan progress as well as any deviation to the plan, the potential impact, and how to mitigate it.

The alternative to decision making is transparency.

Decisions are conclusions or resolutions reached after consideration (the Oxford dictionary definition of ‘decision’). When something needs to be considered it means it is not transparent. Create transparency and what follows are not decisions but ‘the logical next step’. When something is transparent you don’t have to think. Transparency allows decisions to be replaced by approvals.

Het vrijmaken van resources is efficiënter dan kosten besparen

In goede tijden is het eenvoudiger om goede marges te maken. In slechte tijden is je enkel verlaten op goede kwaliteit een uitdaging. Maar het simpelweg het mantra “kosten besparen” hanteren leidt tot een lagere kwaliteit en uiteindelijk kleinere marges. Het implementeren van DFS leidt tot een betere benutting van de beschikbare expertise, een verbetering van de kwaliteit, en dus uiteindelijk ook tot lagere kosten. Dit is hoe expert-organisaties de competitie voorblijven, en hun marges op peil houden.

Leadership performance is easy to predict.

In every leadership-role the aim is to create the conditions to achieve the aims against minimal risk. The needed combination of experience and skills is always different. Simple observations help to identify the right person.

Everybody can manage risk, only few can minimise it.

In every organisation there are both identified and unidentified risks. Unidentified risks occur e.g. when aims are not clearly understood, when it is unclear whether the right expertise is available, or used appropriately. All of which results in decision making. To manage identified risks is straightforward, to minimise risk you must avoid decision making. Which is what an expert does. But what does it take to become an expert?

To stay ahead, freeing up resources beats cutting cost.

In good times it may be relatively easy to make profits. In bad times relying on quality alone can be challenging. But the approach of “cutting cost” will affect the quality of your solution, and margins will get affected. Implementing DFS improves the utilisation of available expertise, improving quality and (thus) bringing cost down. This is how expert organisations stay ahead of competition, and retain healthy margins.

That decisions increase risk is not semantics, it is logic.

That decisions increase risk follows from the dictionary definition and use of logic. Few experience decisions in this way, for various obvious reasons. Many unsubstantiated choices are made based on experience or are educated guesses. We get a lot of decisions right. When the risk does occur, usually much later, we often fail to make the link with the decision. What is more, making decisions often makes us feel good. But the risk is still for real.
