Agile teams work in a widely self-organized way. This raises the question who actually takes descisions in such a context.
Depending on several factors such as corporate culture the way decisions are taken can differ.
To build trust and support for descisions amongst the team it can be helpful to understand the way a decisions are made.
In order to support that, we created a poster that visualizes the most common models for decision making. It covers the most common decision models single, consultative, consent, consensus and hybrid.
Every model has strengths and weaknesses in terms of speed and sustainability. Every organisation should find the most appropriate model or even a mixture that works best in the respective context.
Visualizing decision models helps to gain insights into the way decisions are made and thus improves fairness and trust amongst the team members.
