Guide and Best Practices

Decision making is a primary function of management. It is the activity of choosing the best solution out of alternative choices.

Decision Making Process

  • Identify the problem or opportunity and see if investing time in it is worthwhile. Understand how it will affect your organization, employees or customers.
  • Analyze the situation by examining data and gather information necessary to make the decision. For example, if the issue is in your process, you can use a process map to examine the steps and identify where the blocker is.
  • Once you have identified the issue, seek ways you can approach it. Identify the alternative solutions and options using a cause and effect diagram.
  • Weigh the pros and cons of every solution to see which alternative is the best one. You can ask for the opinion of your team or an expert.
  • Evaluate the feasibility, desirability and acceptability of your options. At the same time examine the risk involved and the possible ways you can avoid them.
  • You can select the option/solution that has minimum risks involved. Using the risk-reward analysis you can assess the risk and reward profile of the different options.
  • Create your plan to implement your solution. The plan should include the resources you need, the team members who should be involved etc.
  • Once you have implemented the solution, evaluate it for effectiveness. This will help you identify what works and what doesn’t the next time when you are making a decision.
