Decision-
Making
in
a Brigade Command Team:Integrating Theory and Practice
by

Humans
make decisions,
but,
exactly,
how
do
we make
decisions?
One
school of
thought
is
that
humansadopt
an analytical, rational decision
making
process.
That
is,
we first
diagnose
the
problem, seek relevant
information, identify
a
number
of
options
or
alternatives,
and
finally,
make
a rational choice
among
the
many
options.In
the
military
context
,
where
decisions
made
by
military
com
manders, often
have
dire consequencesif failed, it is
not
surprising that militaryorganizations
have
invested time
and
resources
to
develop doctrine
and
procedures
to
guide
military decisionmaking,
and
train military commandersto be
cognizant with
these
re
quirements.
These
procedures
are
logical
and
prescriptive in nature.Indeed,
the
SAF
has
adopted
thisanal
ytical
perspective
for
its
ba
ttle
procedure.
Increasingly,
there
is
awareness
tha
t
the
current set
of
doctrine
andprocedures may not
be
appropriate
under
certain conditions. This
growing
uneasiness
among many military
20 )
commanders
can be attributed to
two
reasons. Firstly, military
commanders
realize
that
this is
not
how
they
make
decisions in operations. Often they
have
to
adapt
the prescribed procedures to
suit
the
way
they operate.
Secondly,
and
also
more
importantly,military
commanders
find it
hard
to follow the
prescribed procedures even
if
theywant
to because of
both
time pressure
caused
by
high operational tempo
and
high
level of uncertainty.So
how
do
humans
make
decisions
under
time pressure
and
uncertainty?In 1985,
Gary
Klein
examined
howfirefighters
made
life
and death
decisions
under
extreme time pressure.
Simply
put
,
they
found that experts
use their
experience
to
make
rapidand
effective
decisions
under
timepressure
and
uncertainty. The
fieldhas come to be
known
as NaturalisticDecision-Making (NOM).We believe insights from
NOM
can
complement
the
analytical
approach
to
decision-making,
and
advance
our understanding
of decision-making
in
the
SAF.
Hence,
in
developing
a
preliminary
modelof decision
