Decision Making Process
“A good decision should be judged by the process used not the results achieved”
(Management Debunked Myth). Using three scenarios I will use the decision-making process to
identify and solve the problems presented. The 8 steps used to solve a problem are a great tool to
get to a solution. I will follow these decision-making guidelines to try and solve each scenario
