The way we live is not sustainable. We are collectively consuming too many resources. On a global, national, organisational and often also personal level.
The way we organise ourselves is not efficient and rarely make us happy. Hierarchical structures routinely bypass expertise and puts decisions at the feet of people who shouldn’t be making them. This happens in politics, in organisations, in teams, in families, in our own lives.
We will not simply start changing the way we live. We may want to, but we don’t. Still, we must use fewer resources. The problem is that to make a meaningful change in the way we live — allowing us to achieve the same goals with much fewer resources — we first need resources over and beyond the ones we are already using. Resources which we don’t have or can’t afford. This makes change almost impossible.
The key to change — and saving the world — is to free up resources. By finding a way to use but not waste resources. These freed up resources will allow us to make a difference, today.
Resources are freed if we, in politics, in organisations, in the way we organise our everyday lives, start making use of available expertise. Systematically. All of the time.
Wherever experts are at work — be it an individual or an organisation — decisions are avoided. Experts know what to do next to achieve results. If you tell an expert what it is you want to have achieved, an expert knows what to do. An expert, too, will be able to explain it to you. Every choice an expert makes the expert can substantiate.
Decisions are unsubstantiated choices1. Decisions increase risk.
Experts achieve results against minimal risk — and hence against the minimal use of resources — because they can avoid decision making.
Decision Free Solutions is an approach to make expertise matter by avoiding decision making. It frees up resources. It maximises benefits. It unlocks creativity. It increases joy at the workplace. And it will allow you to start saving the world, today.
