Quality decision-making is grounded in reality, unfortunately many decision makers are not. Just after the news, I have to ask myself “why did they make that decision now and not six months ago or why are they going in that direction at all?”
I do not profess to be all-knowing or all-seeing, so I trust they have more information than I do to come to such a conclusion. It does not matter if it is in politics or business; most decisions are late in coming and go to one extreme or another. As a whole, we are lacking good quality decision makers and those that prove they have this skill are rewarded handsomely for it.
Many sources are available to aid you with making good decisions. I found consulting companies, seminars, courses, books, articles, and software in abundance with just a few Google searches.
I scraped my article I wrote on this topic because of the sheer amount of information that I found in just moments. I really did not have anything new to add after I spent a few hours reading. I must admit this was a humbling realization.
I have included a few links to some of the better articles I found.
