Your organization is the result of the decisions you make—period. Everything else is just details.
That is why decisions are postponed…avoided…transferred—anything but made. The consequences of making a dreadful mistake are overwhelming.
Effective decision-making requires you to tackle mountains of data, unconscious assumptions, the fickle behavior of countless stakeholders and tumultuous environmental factors—whilst ensuring that your actions remain auditable!
You wouldn’t attempt to balance your check-book without a calculator, but decision-makers persist in trying to make complex decisions using their unaided “judgement”. Frankly, this is indefensible.
Decision science has now advanced to the stage where it can guide decision-makers through the most challenging of questions. Using appropriate software, the complexity involved in the decision-making process can be managed…tamed…providing the decision-maker with the insights he needs to make the final call.
