DecisionMaking

Therewas a debate within my current workplace on whether the companyshould launch its own website or not. Some were in support whileothers were against the idea. To come up to a decision, theorganization decided to follow a decision-making process. The firststep was identifying the problem, which was a low customer base forthe company. The manager proposed that people seek information aboutthe problem for us to clarify our options. After research, wedeveloped potential alternatives such as creating a website orincreasing the advertisement of the company in radios and newspapers.We then analyzed all the alternatives and decided that the best wayof increasing the company’s customer base was through a company’swebsite. We finally implemented the decision and proceeded toevaluate it, to learn and correct for future decision-making.

Thecoordination among the company members made the process effective asit assisted in raising the quality of the decision reached. The finaldecision involved critical evaluation by each staff, which made thedecision a creative solution to the problem the company was facing.The groups’ participation in the decision-making process was alsovery essential. It made the staff to increase their commitmenttowards achieving the company’s goals (Dubois et al., 2013). Theinvolving of all the staff members in the decision-making processalso gave each member a pride of being associated with the company,which led to an increase in acceptance and satisfaction. Therefore, adecision-making process is effective to a company as it allows allteams to participate, which motivate staff members to increase theirrate of production.
