Poorly made or rushed decisions can put a business at risk. Taking time to consider all the available information will help avoid costly mistakes - such as overlooking the impact a decision may have on other areas of the business.

Using Information for Decisions shows employees how to take a logical and structured approach to the decision making process. It introduces a sequence of steps designed to help plan and implement decisions so they can choose the best option and have greater confidence in the final outcome.
