We should not AIways Involve Everybody
Mohammad nabi Faraji, Management Consultant, Iran

I have experienced bottom-up approach in numerous cases and with good results in most cases. It is clear that this approach is not advised for all decisions. It is very important to distinguish the appropriate cases. For example it can not be done for cases in which the bottom levels have no information about the issue at hand.
And also it does not mean that all employee have to be participated in all decisions. In some cases only the employee of relevant departments should be engaged.

Bottom-up Approach: a Way to Sustain Organizations
Agnes Nkatha, Student (MBA), Kenya
I am a strong proponent of bottom-up approach because it does not only motivates the employees but also ensures they strongly own the organization's activities and and its future.
My experience has largely been on top-down which though as argued may serve in certain circumstances, especially where quick decisions are to be made; it nevertheless denies the organization the richness of shared decisions.
When a decision is made bottom-up, even if things don't work as expected, there are are no blames and pointing of fingers.
Instead, everybody is prepared to go back to the drawing board and search for more workable solutions!
