Lessons from NASA help organisations navigate their own issues.
Under intense pressure and faced with a problem they hadn’t planned for, NASA focused on reducing their challenge to simple actions and made them happen. Sensemaking is the science that best explains these actions and those of other extreme events. Its principles are embedded in Footdown software to help leaders today.
Introduce workable certainty
Understand the state of your organisation and where to focus.
Leaders need to see the wood for the trees in a crisis. They are likely to be dealing with high stress, something new, little time and no clear existing route to follow. Relying on hindsight when the current reality is different is risky.
Sensemaking in software
Harness your workforce’s instinct as to what is really going on.
Footdown embeds Sensemaking in software. It gives leaders the critical snapshot of their business they can rely on to help guide where to focus resources and action. This might include leadership issues, the need for structure, current climate, team attributes or performance of specific business units.
