Clarify organizational drivers (i.e. what’s happening and what’s needed in relation to the organization), and respond as required.

Responses to organizational drivers include:

  • direct action (operations)
  • organizing how work will be done
  • making governance decisions

The response to an organizational driver is typically treated as an experiment that is evaluated and evolved over time.

Possible responses to organizational drivers

Qualify Organizational Drivers

A driver is a person’s or a group’s motive for responding to a specific situation. A driver is considered an organizational driver if responding to it would help the organization generate value, eliminate waste or avoid harm.

A simple way to qualify whether or not a driver falls within an organization’s domain is by checking:

Would it help the organization if we respond to this driver? Or would it harm us if we don’t?
