group decision or the leader's decision?? (RDM)

What I am thinking is..can a correct or robust decision be taken by one person and then implemented in the organization?

What is the role of leadership in making a correct decision then?

What if the team comes up with a different decision than the decision taken by the top management

which decision should be implemented in the company…

what I believe is…a robust decision is a outcome of a group thinking.. lead by a leader who has given the team a vision and taken them on board while taking the decision…its once again a team work and team effort.. the workers who work for the company make help in making a very robust decision in buying spare parts of a certain machine..

because they are the one who use the machine and have a very good knowledge about the machine… top management cant make a good decision while ignoring the staff or the workers…

  1. Its quite an interesting questions: Omar I think it is impossible to take robust decisions alone without brainstorming. But it should also be combined with proper leadership to avoid bias. What you are speaking of is the bias and importance given to team members. Its indeed a tough and complex process but at the same time robust decision cannot be made without a team that is lead by a leader. The leader here will inevitably play the role of a coach, moderator, influencer, decision maker, etc through proper consensus. This is what I think…....hope it helps.
