Peter Drucker on Making Decisions (by Peter Drucker)

Link to article
"When leaders made effective decisions, they followed these eight (8) practices:

  1. They asked, "What needs to be done?"
  2. They asked, "What is right for the enterprise?"
  3. They developed action plans.
  4. They took responsibility for decisions.
  5. They took responsibility for communicating.
  6. They were focused on opportunities rather than problems.
  7. They ran productive meetings.
  8. They thought and said "we" rather than "I."

"The first two practices gave them the knowledge they needed. The next four helped them convert this knowledge into effective action. The last two ensured that the whole organization felt responsible and accountable."

What practices do you (as a leader) use to make effective decisions? Let's use them in the terms of education and e-learning!
