Operational Decision-Making

Operational decisions are at the center of business in all industries, from determining the appropriate amount of credit to lend, to calculating a customer loyalty discount, to requesting internal authorization. Every decision carries risk and companies can pay a high price for poor decision-making both in terms of money and reputation. Decision rules are therefore defined to manage this risk. However, if only a minority have the expertise to understand and apply these rules, the consequences can be far-reaching:

Empowering Business Users to Manage Operational Decision-Making

  • Decisions are made without full consideration and decision-making is inconsistent
  • Risks materialize and costs are incurred, such as customers becoming insolvent
