Leadership Tools: A Bias for Action - The Behavior that Matters.

“Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking.” - From Amazon Principles

The great news is that these are skills that can be developed in teams no different than craft skills.  Charles Duhigg describes a little bit of how the Marines changed their boot camp to teach recruits how to take action in the right direction even in the face of conflicting orders.
