Description

It is clear that some organisations consistently win in the marketplace, while others struggle from crisis to crisis. The primary factor that determines which way they go is the quality of the decisions made by their leaders. For this reason, and because it determines how well every other talent or capability we have can be applied, professional judgement is one of the most important leadership attributes. The challenge is that making decisions, whether relating to strategy, operational crises or people, cannot reliably be boiled down to the 'science' of pure reasoning in a process that will provide all the answers, even though many people have been misled to believe this is the case.
