Any Manager Must Make Informed and Educated Decisions

I agree with you that making any decision based on facts or information is important. Otherwise you’re not making business decisions, but you‘re gambling.

One step further: any manager or leader should make EDUCATED decisions under normal circumstances that is. When a person makes an educated decision about something, she has learned about the subject before making up her mind — she has been educated or educated herself, and she understands the subject well or even completely. A heck of a reason for visiting 12manage before you make any major business decision to look for methods, models, and ideas from others 😃

In my opinion, the extent to which a decision has to be informed and educated does depend on the decision-making context / environment. And the risk attitude of the decision-maker is also playing a role.
You might want to take a look at an earlier very good discussion about the role of gut feeling in decision-making.
