Decisions

The enterprise is constantly making decisions across a broad range of impact areas. Some decisions are fundamental and far-ranging strategic decisions. Some are rapid-fire operational decisions that must be made as events impinge in real time.

•    Elements: perceptions, deviations from desired state, role-players, alternative courses of action, empowerment.
•    Types: relationships (partners, employees, customer or client), business or organizational structure, transaction, offer
•    Sociality: In enterprises, significant decisions are made in a collaborative fashion, hence fundamentally social. Small operational decisions may be less collaborative, and more in the manner of automaticity. But the pre-decided parameters of automatic decisions have been worked out in management collaborations. And all decisions of the enterprise are likely to have social impact on its various constituencies (customers, vendors, etc.)
