How you go about making a decision can involve as many choices as the decision itself. Sometimes you must take charge and decide what to do on your own, but you do not want to appear autocratic to your team (particularly in situations where you need their input).
At other times, it is better to decide based on the group consensus, but this can use up precious time and resources. So how do you decide which approach is best?
Every leader needs to be able to make good decisions. A systematic approach to decision making allows you to bring consistency and order to a process that might otherwise feel idiosyncratic and instinctive. It can also help you to determine the most effective means of reaching a decision. This module teaches the skill of leadership decision-making.
