Frequently Asked Questions

How do I successfully make a decision?

First, determine the need for a decision and the timing for your decision. Establish a deadline for the decision to be made, and try not the miss a deadline just because you don’t have enough information.  Instead, try to determine if a decision can be made even though you don’t have every piece of information. 

Who should be involved in the decision-making process?

Be sure to communicate the decision to the people who offered recommendations before announcing the decision to all who will be impacted.  Next, present clear communication of the decision to the public that will be affected. This order is important to follow, because it will ensure that no one directly impacted hears of the decision “through the grapevine”, rather than hearing it from you.
