Decision Disagreement Framework – How One Company Encourages Disagreements

As a team member, how do you voice your disagreement with a decision that you believe is not in the best interest of the company? As a leader, how do you enable your team to disagree with decisions in an equitable and productive way?

One company, Matter, set out to answer these questions. Although there are a number of useful frameworks for making NEW decisions they couldn’t find a framework for handling and supporting disagreements after decisions have been made, especially if you weren’t a part of making that decision. They took inspiration from existing frameworks to create the Decision Disagreement Framework.
