Judgment is the mental act of formulating an understanding or isolating a specific conclusion. Beliefs, convictions, conclusions, assessments, taste, discretion, forming of opinions, and discrimination are all acts of judgment. We eliminate options when we judge, thus judgment kills any new thinking. In Org, we need judgment in the form of policy, rules, and procedures to give us behavioural and operational boundaries. Together the opposing forces of judgment and creativity provide the context for a high performing organization. From judgment, we receive our order and from creativity, we get the needed chaos for organizational evolution. Too much judgment will lead to stagnation and too much creativity will lead to uncertainty. It is common practice to call people who over-judge, judgemental.
