How is Your Vision?

How detailed is your vision? I’m not talking about whether or not you need glasses, but whether or not you have enough detailed information to make good decisions.

This is an issue with both business and personal decisions.  It is, in fact, why so many business process improvement initiatives fail. Six Sigma process improvement projects are meant to address this issue for businesses, but you also need a personal strategy to avoid falling prey to poor resolution (lack of detail) How many times have you decided on an action only to find that a critical, missing, detail undermined your success?  .

The problem is our reliance on two dimensional, discrete, thinking. Pass/Fail, Yes/No, Democrat/Republican, etc. Two dimensional thinking allows you to be 100% right or 100% wrong, but never partially right

A more continuous way of thinking will lead to better detail and better decisions. As detail increases, so does our ability to see problems in their true colors (resolution). What you will find is that you will move from the “what”(pass/fail), to the “why” (causal relationships).

Consider this analogy of moving from low resolution to high resolution.

At 50 miles of altitude, if you fired at a target on the ground and missed by one degree, you would miss the target by 38 miles.

At 10 miles of altitude, if you fired at a target on the ground and missed by one degree, you would miss the target by 1.74 miles.

At 5 miles of altitude, if you fired at a target on the ground and missed by one degree, you would miss the target by 2300 feet (a little less than ½ mile).

At 1000 feet of altitude, if you fired at a target and missed by one degree, you would miss the target by 3 feet.

More Detail = More Resolution = Higher Accuracy = Improved Performance
