May 25, 2023: RAPID Decision Making Framework

Description: Over the years, Bridgespan has helped scores of nonprofits and NGOs learn about their RAPID® decision making framework.  The RAPID® framework can help your team create a shared language for decision roles and bring transparency to your decision processes. It helps clarify who provides input to a decision, who shapes the decision and ultimately decides on it, and who carries out the decision once it is made. Bridgespan has found it to be highly effective, and also easily adaptable to different situations, team sizes, and types of organizations
