- how likely is it that you were influenced by a taken-for-granted frame?
- do you need to rethink the way you regard risks (i.e. as opportunities or threats)?
- are there any lessons in terms of the way you regard outcomes (i.e. as gains or losses)?
- did you identify all the alternatives, or has it become clear that unconsidered alternatives would have been better? how can you ensure that your future decision-making frames cover these alternatives?
- what information has come to light that could help to reduce the subjectivity of your probability assessments in futures?
- how can learning be enshrined in the business and made easily available and usable for future decisions?
- are downsides and/or upsides in line with expectations? are there any unforeseen dimensions or knock-on effects in the outcome?
For any of these questions to be answered effectively, it's crucial that you have an objective record of your original decision making processes.
