Decide X Strategic Decision-Making Instrument

SKU 5010E1S05

Organizational engineering is defined as a branch of knowledge that seeks to understand, measure, predict, and guide the behavior of groups in a way that produces positive organizational outcomes.

Decide X is a 24-question organizational engineering instrument developed based on the work of industry expert Dr. Gary J. Salton. This assessment shows you how team members make decisions by classifying their thought processes under four styles: 

  1. Reactive stimulator
  2. Logical processor
  3. Hypothetical analyzer
  4. Relational innovator

From these styles, "strategic patterns" can be determined. Observed over time, your behavior will tend to favor these strategies. Individuals and teams can then be assigned tasks, with insight into how these tasks will be handled.

Decide X provides a complete description of all primary/secondary style pairs, as well as a brief overview of the strategic patterns. Decide X also includes a strategic style interaction guide so that individuals can "flex" their styles to accommodate each other's information processing needs.

The theory behind Decide X has been tested with over 10,000 individuals in organizations such as EDS, Shell Oil, Ford, GE Capital, GTE, and Sears.
