Group Decision-Making Tools and Techniques_FOR Exemplary_Professor001 ONLY
In this week’s Discussion, you will consider one of the more important components of effective communication: determining your target audience. It does not take much for a good decision to be torpedoed by a group or an individual who does not feel that they were consulted or appropriately informed about the need or rationale for the decision.

However, even after a problem is identified, possible outcomes are analyzed, and a final decision is formulated, the decision maker must continue to think critically about the situation, specifically in reference to stakeholders in the decision. The process of identifying, strategizing, and communicating a decision requires higher-order thinking.
