discussion in decisions.

Even though I believe that in order to make good decisions, the person making the decision needs to be well informed, i find that discussion among groups really bring out good ideas and really assist in the decison making.

Sometimes indecisiveness can come from not having all the information needed to make a good discussion can fill in those gaps and even if the people participating in the discussion don't have the answer, they may hold the key to where to find it. Discussion also makes people feel like they are part of the process--it gives them ownership of the solution, so people actually think and put in a lot of effort, resulting in a win win situation for all.

  1. You are right Thomas, even in real life Information is always limited in some way or the other. Think about it, if we have all the information the only thing that will be useful is the application of common sense. However with limited Information robust decision making would be required and this is where the decision making tools renders a useful service, although it must go in hand with our systems II thinking. Also another point well made was the indecisiveness, these tools provides the grounds for brainstorming and an ownership of the problems as well as the solutions that are arrived at.
