Contents: Tough decisions: how uncertainty, ambiguity, and conflict produce tough decisions; tough decisions that become debacles - five case examples. What inhibits and misleads decision makers: errors in sizing up the situation; faulty reasoning; unconscious preferences; different styles of decision-making. Decision-making processes: analytical, group, and mixed-mode processes; matching decision processes to types of decisions. Key steps in decision-making: using groups for decision making; uncovering core problems; providing balanced viewpoints; comparing the value of alternatives and "what if" questioning; learning from success and failure. Techniques that support the decision process: managing decision-making groups; how to set objectives, identify criteria, uncover alternatives, and confront ethical concerns; weighing criteria and estimating the likelihood of future conditions; using decision trees to deal with chance events and sequential choice; applying multiple criteria to assess alternatives; using decision analysis to foster learning. Appendices: Measuring tolerance for uncertainty; measuring tolerance for ambiguity; measuring decision style.
