Description - Managerial Decision Making Leadership by Caroline Wang

The modern manager faces a bewildering range of challenges every
single day. Their ability to make critical decisions, often under
pressure, can directly determine the future success of the company
and their career. It is therefore surprising that so few managers
take the time to learn the art of decision making. In this
groundbreaking book from Caroline Wang, readers will learn that
quality decision making is a competence that can be acquired
according to a simple framework. The framework is practical and
easy-to-remember, consisting of two acronyms: GPA and IPO.
GPA for decision content quality (Goal, Priority, Alternatives);
and IPO for decision process quality (Information, People,
Objective reasoning). The book places emphasis on leading a team to
make decisions, even though the framework can be used for personal
and individual decisions.
By using this common decision-making framework, managers and
leaders will gain credibility and team support for the decision,
will confidently articulate, promote, and defend the decision, and
will have made the necessary preparations for successful
implementation when the decision-making process is complete.
This proven framework from one of Asia's most dynamic leadership
experts will improve the quality of your decisions and change the
way you do business.
