DIFFERENT STRATEGIES TOWARDS DECISON MAKING – USAMA NADEEM (RDM)
Decision making is an activity that can be carried out in many different ways. Some people like to make random decisions even in many imporatant situations whereas some people take decisions very carefully by keeping everything in mind and by considering many important factors. During the in-module work although all the people took decisions using more or less the same information and had the same tools available to chose from for reaching those decisions but still the criteria of decision making and the selection of tools was different. Many people chose to select very few important tools and used them for decision making and they did a lot of deep research realted to those tools whereas many groups also selected many tools and my group was among those few groups because the idea was to make the decision as effective and as robust as possible. Although we can't say that which approach was right but still both have their pros and cons. People choosing many tools didn't properly get the chance to look at them in great depth whereas the groups who selected very few tools didn't get the chance lo learn about many other tools that were also available.
So, different people and groups can have different preferences and strategies towards decision making and there is no one right approach towards anything and it really important to learn about the other approaches that could have been adopted and were followed by other people because gives us the chance to learn and do better in the future and avoid that if it was not a successful approach. I personaly feel that it is better to do few things properly than go for many things and don't do well at any of them but that certainly does not mean that we as a group did not do well at all thew approaches. Although we did think that it would be difficult to use so many tools but we still managed to do a very good job at the end. It basically depends on your passion and how much effort you put in your work.
