Abstract:

Decision making must take place as an integrated and sequential process. In reality, we attend meeting after meeting where the sequence of steps are muddled or one step is dwelled upon too long or sometimes the process has even been totally ignored. The benefits from adopting a process-oriented approach to a decision are considerable. Its regular use should become second- nature to everyone in the organization but, it is absolutely essential that successful managers should be purposeful and rational in their decision making. The more systematically a manager can go about it, the more likely he or she is to capitalize or experience and the facts available and make a correction decision. In these austere times, we will no longer have the luxury of wasting time discussing vague alternatives which do not meet the objectives.
