How does your team make group decisions?

Kristen Roth Atlassian Team Mar 18, 2021

Did you know it's estimated that we make over 35,000 decisions every day? 🤯 

But making good decisions (and making them efficiently!) isn’t always easy. Especially when there’s a group involved. Well, we’ve got a Play to help you with thatThe DACI (Driver, Approver, Contributor, Informed) framework outlines who's responsible for what and when, and helps eliminate the confusion that can sometimes come along with group decision making.

Here’s a quick breakdown of DACI roles and responsibilities:

  • Driver: in charge pushing the team to the best possible outcome

  • Approver: has the final say on which path the team should take

  • Contributors: provide background info, data, and expertise

  • Informed: not expected to contribute, but need to be aware

(And an example of how to create a DACI in Trello! ⇣)

Having defined and properly documented roles and responsibilities at the start of a decision will leave you feeling more confident coming out on the other side. The DACI Play will help bring clarity to your decision-making process while also serving as a reference for showing other teams (and reminding you 6 months later!) how you got to the end result.

Do you use DACIs with your teams? Do they help with your decision making process? We'd love to hear what works for you!
