Decision-making According to Peter Drucker
Donato ochan Hakim, Interim Manager, Sudan, Member
Definition of a Decision
A decision is a choice whereby a person performs a conclusion about a situation. This represents a course of behavior about what must or what must not be done. It is the point at which plans, policies and objectives are translated into concrete actions. Planning leads to decisions guided by company policy and objectives and implies the selection from alternative objectives, policies, procedures and programmes.
Peter Drucker
The purpose of decision-making
With decision-making we try to direct human behavior towards a future goal. If there were no alternatives, there would be no need for a decision.
