Reasoning in Decision Making

In a business decision making process, an aspect of ’Reasoning’ is involved. Reasoning is the process of using existing knowledge to draw conclusions, make predictions, or construct explanations. There are 3 main types:

  1. Deductive Reasoning: Conclusion guaranteed: This process starts with the assertion of a general rule and proceeds from there to a guaranteed specific conclusion.
  2. Inductive Reasoning: This process begins with observations that are specific and limited in scope, and proceed to a generalized conclusion that is likely, but not certain, in the light of accumulated evidence.
  3. Abductive Reasoning: Taking your best shot: It typically begins with an incomplete set of observations and proceeds to the likelihood possible explanation for the set. It can be creative, intuitive, and even revolutionary.
