Overview En god beslutning

Why did I buy a flat with a balcony when I really needed a garage? Which candidate shall I employ? Do we need a turnaround at work? Should I set up this project?

These are important questions with major consequences. Decisions are to do with making choices and putting an end to uncertainty and doubt. Unfortunately, an overwhelming mass of good research indicates that more than half of all our decisions turn out badly. Most of us think that it is difficult to make complex choices which involve risk and serious consequences. We put off and wait, or we just leave things as they are. We base our decisions on too much, too little or incorrect information. So we identify too few possibilities and propose inadequate solutions. Or we simply solve the wrong problem. Those who use a little more time, especially at the start of the decision process, identify more opportunities and formulate better solutions. In the whole process they make quicker and better choices, up to six times better in fact.

Good decision-making can be both learned and practised to a high standard, and the process can be both exciting and fun. This book will give you seven practical steps towards better decision-making.
