We applaud these divergent discussions but in this blog series on decision making we set a middle ground outlining practical executive and managers techniques and tactics to improve your decision making hit rate!
During a series blogs we will provide you with 8 pitfalls that can counteract poor decision making and boost your own results. The 8 pitfalls that will be covered include:

- What if – Risks are rarely considered.
