Strategic Decision Making

When selecting a course of action from among alternatives, we use decision-making. But how can you be certain that the decisions are strategic? Strategic decisions are likely to affect operational decisions, and set off “waves of lesser decisions.” This course discusses decision-making from strategic perspectives that help organizations gain and sustain a competitive advantage and create value. You’ll have a firm grasp of the decision-making process.
