Adaptive Capacity Indicator – Decision Making

This business resilience indicator measures the degree in which staff have the appropriate authority to make decisions related to their work and authority is clearly delegated to enable a crisis response. Highly skilled staff are involved, or are able to make, decisions where their specific knowledge adds significant value, or where their involvement will aid implementation.

The questions which ThinkGRC asks businesses to quantify the Decision Making business resilience indicator are as follows:

To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statements for your organization?¬†Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, Strongly Disagree, Don’t Know

Should problems occur, staff have direct access to someone with authority to make decisions

Our organization can make tough decisions quickly

In our organization, the most qualified people make decisions, regardless of seniority
