Decision Making The choice of making better decisions

What is Decision Making?

Decisions are at the heart of leader success, and often there are critical moments when they can be difficult, perplexing, and nerve-racking. Decision making is the process of selecting a logical choice from the available options. Many different techniques of decision making have been developed, ranging from simple rules of thumb, to more advanced procedures, like rational models. The method used depends on the nature of the decision to be made and on its complexity.

For effective decision making a person must be able to forecast the outcome of each option and determine which option is the best for that particular situation. Decision making is most powerful when combined with logical, intuitive, and creative mental processing. In order to approach a decision, it is usually helpful to break up the decision making process into smaller items, using e.g. a stage model.
