Decision Making – Week One  Decision Making Difficulty: 76% of people have trouble making political choices.  Managers are the Decisions Makers. They must make sure these needs are met in the workplace: Personal Needs, Organizational, Environment, and Task Demands, also known as the Four Force Model.  Environment is made up of competition, government, and the public. It comes into two categories: general and specific. Organizational is made up of interactions, personalities, and commitment. Task Demands is made up of functions and responsibilities. Personal Needs is made up of individual’s needs.  We must look at our failures to actually improve our decision making. The effectiveness of a decision must be viewed in its totality from the initial idea, the assumptions made, the methods used, basis for the choice, gaining of acceptance, and the evaluation of results.  Many managers use intuitions in their decisions. To be effective, the decision maker must deal with both the behavioral and the technical aspects of a problem. Decision making is synonymous with managing and leading. Decisions must be made on a timely and cost – effective basis.  Decisions making tends to emphasize the product of decision making and never the process. The key components in the decision making is decision making process, decision maker, and the decision.  Decision making is the process by which managers respond to opportunities and threats. Decision theory is generally regarded as a quantitative discipline.  50% of the time, managers have to correct poor decisions. Good judgement comes from experience and experience comes from bad decisions.  Demographics are gender, age, ethnicity, geography, income, and life cycle.  Effectiveness is the end result. Doing the right things. Efficiency is doing more with less. Doing things right. Intuition and tools must work together to find solutions.
