Startups with decision cultures



While exploring the practice of decision making I've come across companies that have expressed some decision process as part of their culture.

Here are 9 I've stumbled across so far:
  1. Square - SPADE (SPADE Toolkit)
  2. Coinbase - Parameters / Deliberate / Decide 
  3. Stripe - SCQA, via Zack Tratar and Jeff Weinstein (Writing == Decisions, redacted example)
  4. Amazon - 6 Page Narrative  (again)
  5. Fictiv - DACI
  6. Coda - Framing
  7. Matter - Decision Disagreement Framework
  8. Intercom - RICE
  9. Shopify - TOMASP

I don't believe it to be a coincidence that those companies emphasize (or at least signal...) a decision making practice. 

Instead, I think they are examples of how at some echelon of knowledge work, this practice makes a difference.
