I have worked with Rekon Group to deliver training on two business tools known as the “Decide” and “Direct” tools.
The training was cascaded through the business – starting with the executive and rolling down via a number of guided workshops.
Critically, we quickly found that people starting talking about “our intent”, “the environment” what our “options” were; as opposed to tackling the same problems in the same way; or potentially just asking their direct leader for the answer/resolution. Quickly. People were collaborating and evaluating alternatives instead of jumping to conclusions. We had a common language and we understood what each other was doing. We were able to leverage this quite quickly in the business to drive better outcomes and gain some momentum.
The tools were very helpful. “Doing a Decide” is quite a common call in our business. The stronger users adopted the Direct template and started to house more critical items such as Business Unit strategy inside this document. The two tools operate hand in hand. I know that Rekon Group has since deployed these tools on mobile devices.
Overall, I have found the engagement with Rekon Group to be valuable, both individually and for the team; and would strongly recommend any business seriously consider the programme that Rekon offer.
