Bottom Up Approach is Time Consuming
Charles Moens, Consultant, Belgium

Time consuming? Yes, probably. So what.
We should invest far more time in talking for a more human society. Not just talking as such but listening to each others arguments, not in order to convince, but to finally agree and decide which next steps should be taken.

Bottom Up Approach is Faster!
Michael McAteer, Manager, Canada
Actually, a bottom up approach will lead to FASTER results. The same people that need to implement the change are the ones that developed the change and therefore shortens the buy in and implementation time.
As the managers\leaders our role is to keep the changes in line with the overall goals and objectives of the organization and steer the people in the right direction.
Who better than the individuals that do the actual work be involved in the improvement or change for the better.

Bottum Up is Good, But not for Everything
S.M.Rafeek, Project Manager, Sri Lanka
I feel the bottom up approach is very good, effective and encouraging the bottom level. But we should not stick to it always, for all decision making. That would lead to many problems, especially when the decision concerns the bottom level.

Bottom Up Approach is Not Always Faster but Stimulates Innovation and Creativity
Patricia Niemeyer, Business Consultant, United States
@Michael McAteer: I am not totally convinced that the bottom up approach is ALWAYS faster; however, I do think that this approach provides an increase in innovation and creativity for the firm.
This approach can provide vital information in the decision making processes of the organization. In addition, to providing the firm with a direct feedback from those actually working at each level of the organization as to what works, what does not work, and what may work.
In some cases this approach may be time consuming, however, this is not always the case. It is important to note that increasing innovation and creativity may provide an organization with a competitive advantage and an increased sustainability within the industry.
