Decisions

Managers at all levels and in all areas of organizations make decisions. That is, they make choices. For instance, top-level managers make decisions about their organization’s goals, where to locate manufacturing facilities, or what new markets to move into. Middle-and lower-level managers make decisions about production schedules, product quality problems, pay raises, and employee discipline.

A choice form two or more alternatives.
