Decision making

Decision making is the logical process followed to select a choice from a range of options. In order to consistently make effective decisions, a person must be able to identify and understand all of the key factors associated with each decision, and then weigh the following issues:

  • The strategic and tactical impact of the decision
  • The positives and negatives associated with the decision
  • How changes in future conditions may impact the decision

The best decision makers are able to consistently make correct decisions despite not having complete information with which to make a decision.
