Description

Leaders sometimes need to make decisions in an environment of uncertainty — when important information is unavailable or unknown. Internal and national politics, evolving technology, and global events add to decision-making complexity. Determine when to be flexible and when to be decisive. Employing the right approach at the right time increases individual, team and organizational productivity.
