Hard to believe that people are still tripping over emails.
“Emails Raise Doubts on FBI Plan,” The Wall Street Journal, November 3, 2018 A3. Emails surface contradicting White House claims that moving the FBI from Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. (as proposed by the prior administration) would cost more than leaving it where it is (down the street from the Department of Justice and across the street from the Trump Hotel).
Perhaps there were “soft costs” involved in the move than weren’t considered, or there were other reasons for not moving the FBI from its current location, notwithstanding the higher cost. But it is embarrassing when emails coming to a different conclusion are discovered.
How transparent is your decision-making process? Do you allow for some contrary information in your final decision? Is that proactive information management of negative information? Do you have a policy or a procedure on this? Should you?
