Short essay on decision making

Decision making in essence, is the important act of management. Decision making permeates every part of management practice. Decision making is an important round which other management functions like organisation, directing and controlling are carried out. Drucker stresses the importance of decision making as “whatever a manager does he does through making decisions.

Those decisions may be made as a matter of routine. Indeed he may not even realize that he is making them. Or they may affect the future existence of the enterprise and require years of systematic analysis. But management is always a decision making process”.
