Your friend decides to order a pizza. President Obama decides to authorize the mission that leads to the death of Osama bin Laden. You decide that your business should launch a new product. What do all of these decisions have in common? They all require using the Three Pillar model for decision making that is presented in world-renowned University of Michigan business school professor George Siedel’s book “The Three Pillar Model for Business Decisions: Strategy, Law and Ethics.”
Our personal, leadership, and business decisions are all based on a Strategy Pillar, a Law Pillar, and an Ethics Pillar. This Three Pillar model originated in a leadership course that every Harvard MBA student takes before graduation. The Harvard course is based on three lenses of decision making: economics, law, and ethics. The new Three Pillar model for decision making that Professor Siedel presents in his book “The Three Pillar Model for Business Decisions” expands the Harvard lenses by replacing “economics” with “strategy.”
The Three Pillar model for decision making that Professor Siedel presents in this book is a powerful tool that you, the reader, can use for personal and leadership decisions. The model is also a powerful tool you can use for business decisions, enabling you to achieve the twin goals that lead to business success, which are managing risk and creating value. Ultimately, once you master this book’s Three Pillar model for decision making, you can easily apply the model to any personal decision and any leadership decision in any organization, giving you an edge over your competition.
