Manager of a business shouldnt assume hes right in every
decision he has to make. In that regard, different types of
decision-making should be taken depending on the situation
at hand.

Identifying Problems

Before making any decision, the organization has to identify

exactly what the problem is. Not identifying the problem could
lead to an erroneous decision. The leader of Making decisions
in a company or organization happens at all levels.
A an organization should evaluate the issue with all
employees so everyone knows about it, and then make a
decision that taps into what's worked before if that decision
process is right for solving the issue. This form of decisionmaking can be made into a computer program with a set
pattern of rules to follow in amending a problem.

Multiple Perspective Analysis

Sometimes using multiple perspective analysis to

make a decision is best so a CEO or manager can
force herself out of her usual method of thinking.
Professor Hossein Arsham, in an article titled
Leadership Decision Making at the University of
Baltimore site, notes this method and its steps. By
wearing six different hats, you can make a decision
using different thinking approaches.
For instance, a red hat uses reaction and emotion, or
being aware of how other people will react when the
decision is made. A green hat will use freewheeling
creativity in making a decision. The article also notes
that a decision can be made using differing points of
view from customers or those in different professions.
