Sometimes in an organization individuals may find themselves in situations where they need to take immediate action(s), for whatever reason.It could be due to time constraints or limited resources. This has made me question how robust decisions can still be made in states of emergency or urgency. Robust decisions definitely require time, resources, rationality and logic. Robust decisions also entail a considerable amount of time and effort…but, that should not have to mean that people cannot arrive at robust decisions within the presence of limitations. Indeed robustness requires the adaptation of tools, interpretation of data, use of value judgement, concrete and solid reasoning etc etc. But I also believe that achieving robustness should be perceived as a state of mind. People in organization should be provided with psychological training to help them speed up the decision making process when need be, thus allowing robustness to be consistent in any situation. Or perhaps an establishment of models/frameworks that will allow individuals to be coherent at all times and make robust decisions despite the odds.
