So, where are we heading in this lesson?

In this lesson we look at how transparent decision making helps to ensure that decisions are being made in the right way and for the right reasons. Not only is transparency good practice, but it can also alleviate any suspicions and reinforce an environment of trust, with wider benefits for the whole organisation.

We'll use scenarios to explore environments which lack transparency, how we as people professionals should act when we come across such circumstances. We’ll then reflect on areas of our practice where we may be able to influence and increase the levels of transparency.

We'll get you to reflect on whether there is a process within your sphere of influence which could be more transparent and if so, what changes could resolve the problem? Remember to make notes in your interactive workbook.

We also encourage you to take part in the community forum which provides the collaborative space to share your thinking and ideas with others. In this lesson we’ll ask you to consider a scenario and to share your ideas on how a process could be made as transparent as possible.

Review what others have posted to gain wider understanding on the theme from people professionals working in different contexts. Support the learning community by reading the contributions of others, 'liking' those you find helpful and add your unique reflections to the conversation.
