Who is in charge?
This is an important question to answer before a moment of adversity. If everyone can agree that someone has a final decision, everyone doesn’t have to agree. Leaderless teams or teams that lack decision-makers have to settle on unanimous votes before they can move forward. I say settle because the alternative is an argument of competing interests that fails to move the team forward. Having a clear idea of who has the authority to decide something can save a lot of time and confusion.
