Leadership Nudge®123 – Move Authority to Information


This week’s Leadership Nudge is about one of the algorithms by which you operate your hierarchy. One of our principles is we push authority to information, not channel information to authority. Here is a simple way to change a little bit in your organization.

Let’s say you have a current routing process where a form is submitted, then reviewed by a level or two, and then approved at the highest levels in your organization. It might look like this;


What we suggest that you do, and this is our nudge to you this week, is to simply move the final approval down one level but keep the process routing to the top. In other words, the process now looks like this;


The former final authority still sees what is happening, but the final approval rests in the hands of the next lower level.

Our Leadership Nudge to you this week is this:

Take at least one form and change it from submitted-reviewed-reviewed-approved to submitted-reviewed-approved-informed.

Let us know what how it goes!
