Reaching sound conclusions

Rushing into change without thinking ahead can lead to some challenging situations, so it's important to have the skills needed to reach a sound conclusion.

Reaching a sound conclusion will help you make the changes you want to, so in this section we'll guide you through some ways that can help.

The 3 stages of reaching sound conclusions

Reaching a sound conclusion can be broken down into a three-part process. Here's a short guide to explain more.

Turning your conclusion into action

So, you've reached your conclusion, but what's next? Action!

All the work you've put in to reaching your conclusion needs to become an achievable and measurable outcome, otherwise it will have all been for nothing. A good idea is to present your conclusion to your team, get them on-board and make a plan of action together.

A good plan of action answers these questions:

  • What is the conclusion we reached?
  • Why are we taking this action?
  • What tasks need to be completed?
  • Who will be responsible for what tasks?
  • How long will the tasks take?
  • When do the tasks need to be completed by?
  • How will they be completed?

Not putting a plan of action together is like starting to bake a cake without a recipe. With an action plan in place you'll be able to keep pushing your solution forward and make sure you get done everything you wanted to do.
