Three Principles of Fair Process

Return to BOS tools

What is fair process? Fair process builds execution into strategy by creating people's buy-in up front. When fair process is exercised in the strategy making process, people trust that a level playing field exists. This inspires them to cooperate voluntarily in executing the resulting strategic decisions.

There are three mutually reinforcing elements that define fair process: engagement, explanation, and clarity of expectation. Whether people are senior executives or shop employees, they all look to these elements. We call them the three Ε principles of fair process.
