Often design and other key decisions are made quickly and independently without considering all the possibilities, leading to a less than optimized situation.  Nemawashi is about making decisions slowly by consensus, thoroughly considering all options; and implementing rapidly.  This change in philosophy from how we typically make decisions should have an important impact on your business --not only in how your company makes decisions, but how you also make  personal decisions.  It’s not about making quick decisions; it’s about making wise decisions.
