Decision making is the process of identifying and choosing Â alternative courses of action. While we want to make rational decisions, Â sometimes we donâ€™t . . . sometimes we make non-rational decisions.
There are four steps in rational decision-making:
Recognize and define the problem or opportunity-In business the Â problem can come in the form of customer complaints, supplier Â breakdowns, staff turnover, sales decline, etc. Organizations Â proactively seek opportunities to exceed goals, surpass the industry Â expectations and to expand and grow the business.Â
Identify and analyze alternative courses of action-Leaders Â should seek input from multiple sources to interpret and analyze the Â problem/opportunity to come up with as many options as possible to solve Â the issue.Â
Choose a preferred course of action-The group want to answer the Â following: (1) Is the action ethical?; (2) Is it feasible? (costs, Â technology availability; (3) Is it effective? If your answer to this Â question is the resolution is â€œgood enoughâ€ you want to rethink this Â solution it will cause more harm than good.Â
Implement the preferred course of action-You need to the participation from all teams to successfully implement the action.Â
On the other hand, non-rational decisions are generally the result of either Satisficing (going with the first available option without much research) or Intuition (using your â€œgutâ€ or just your own feelings to make decisions).
For this weekâ€™s discussion, think about a time when you made a non-rational decision on the job or in your personal life.
Was it the result of satisficing or intuition?Â
