What is Decision Quality

Encyclopedia of Strategic Leadership and Management
The quality of the decision relates to how wise, well-reasoned, and sound it is. This depends on where the information and expertise needed for a particular decision reside, whether the decision makers care about the good of the organization, and whether the decision team is synergistic rather than dysfunctional (Osland, 2007 AU55: The in-text citation "Osland, 2007" is not in the reference list.
