Example text

4 provides an overview of the decision-making process. The intelligence stage involves gathering information concerning the decision to be made. It recognises that managers must be made aware that a problem exists before any action can be taken. Once a problem has been identified, information is collected in order to achieve a thorough understanding of the problem and the circumstances in which it arose. Unless this understanding is achieved, managers may take an inappropriate approach to the problem, resulting in a less efficient or even ineffective solution.

A manager’s cognitive style will fall between analytical and intuitive styles. The way in which managers make decisions, and the factors that influence those decisions, are often described as decision behaviour. Decisions can be classed as structured or unstructured (sometimes referred to as ‘programmable’ and ‘non-programmable’ decisions). In reality, however, many decisions fall somewhere in between the two extremes and are known as semi-structured decisions. Structured decisions tend to involve situations where the rules and constraints governing the decision are known.

The decision to reorder a given item will be governed by a fairly simple set of rules and constraints. When the amount of stock held falls below a certain point, a fixed quantity of new stock will be ordered. Structured decisions are often described as programmable, meaning that they are easily automated. Unstructured decisions tend to involve more complex situations, where the rules governing the decision are complicated or unknown. Such decisions tend to be made infrequently and rely heavily on the experience, judgement and knowledge of the decision maker.
