Do a Brainstorm Session to Make (or Prepare for) Major Decisions

It is adviseable to conduct a branstorm session before any big project for an effective decision making. In my long years of industrial experience I have found it is useful and wise to do brainstorming before taking any major decision.
The members of the group should be from various functional areas, such as production, planning, purchase, maintenance, stores and safety. This helps in two ways:
1. All aspects are covered while a final decision is made,
2. It makes all the members duty bound to adhere to the decision.
Note that it is imperative that the person responsible for making the decision is answerable and will be held responsible for the final outcome.
