One of the key responsibilities of a manager is to make day-to-day decisions to respond to emergencies and situations that are not expected or planned for in the strategic plan. Managers may wish to make decisions on their own as individuals, or they may make decisions based on group input.
After reading Chapter 3 in your textbook as well as the supplemental reading, Are Your Critical-Decision-Making Skills Evolving?, and completing your own research, write a post that answers the following:
1. When should we use groups in decision-making?
2. How effective are groups in the decision-making process?
3. Who should be involved in the group decision-making process?
4. Should a manager make all decisions as an individual? Why or why not?
