Value-Based Decision Making

Values-based decision making guides us in incorporating our values in all aspects of our health ministry.

The Elements of Values-Based Decisions are:

Values-Driven - Excellence, Caring Spirit, Integrity, Stewardship and Good Humor.

Inclusiveness - All decision-making is representative of all affected persons and interests.

Truthfulness - All decision-making is fully and straightforwardly communicated.

Reasonable Consistency - All decision-making treats similar cases and situations similarly.

Collaboration - All decision-making is conducted in a collegial and cooperative manner.


The Steps in Values-Based Decision Making are:

  • Assemble the right participants.
  • Assemble the right facts.
  • Clarify the Core Values.
  • Reach a collaborative consensus.
  • Broadcast the values-based decision.
