Thebest decisions make use of logic with all the information availableto select an alternative that has the highest value and that whichwill result in a favorable decision-making for the good of thecompany. In other words, these decisions that are to be made mayinvolve a complicated calculation of data with the aim of producing aformula that will point to the best choice. There are many factorsthat affect people’s ability to make an objective decision thatwill result in better outcome within the organization. These factors,among others, include stakeholder framing, mental model, and decisiveleadership that is practiced within an organization (McShane &ampVon Glinow, 2013).

Forover the past time, it has been difficult to evaluate severalavailable alternatives and in the process select that particularalternative to making a better decision. This is because the goalsand objectives that have been set to be achieved by the organizationare either vague or are in conflict with one another, hence creatinga confusing situation (McShane &amp Von Glinow, 2013). Therefore, itis important to choose critically in between the range ofalternatives that are available or even in the scenario planning forthis has been argued to hold.

In addition to this, McShane &amp Von Glinow, (2013), stated thatthe confirmation bias and the escalation of self-commitment can alsobe avoided by an individual through separating different decisionchoosers from the decision evaluators who have been mandated withthese tasks within an organization. Additionally, to prevent theconfirmation bias, one is supposed to rely more on the systematicfeedback in addition to involving many people into thedecision-making process.
