"The most dangerous decision-making fallacy is that informed decision-makers will naturally make better, more objective decisions. Making consistently timely, effective, informed decisions takes hard work. Trust me – it’s worth it. Effective decision-making is the essential common ingredient behind every successful step, initiative, and strategy that people, organizations, and national governments undertake."
OPR's Decision-Making Framework and Services
Decisions are the tip of the spear in our lives and the organizations we lead. How decisions are made, by whom, and how effectively they are executed define organizational performance. The quality and effectiveness of decision-making more than any other factor distinguish outstanding organizations from runner-ups.
Decision-making has been a core human function and responsibility. This exclusivity is being challenged by smart systems, automation, and artificial intelligence. Humans still make most consequential decisions, and someone is usually held accountable for the results. But the growing role of smart tech and AI has major implications for the way organizations are structured, lead, and managed.
