Decision making is a major part of any business’s’ daily operations. To quickly and effectively move an organization forward and sustain internal loyalty and cohesion, employees need to share in its processes and outcomes. Every company is responsible for providing key information on new innovations, products and services, as well as potential courses of action, not only to external customers but also to its own people.
In order to bring about favorable outcomes, companies must operate using far-sighted and careful decision making based upon critical analysis and applied logic. The company that uses its employee resources to help make and implement wise decisions is doing far more than surviving: it is using sound management practices and thoughtful planning to compete far more aggressively.
Intelligent Decision Making presents effective critical thinking and decision-making strategies and techniques. It helps managers how to overcome poor or faulty decision making to make more effective decisions to increase productivity and performance.
