Decision Making

De­ci­sion-mak­ing is about what we will do, how we will do it, and why. But, it is also about how we make de­ci­sions. It’s about de­ci­sion-mak­ing ap­proaches, log­ics, meth­ods, processes.

But, what if there is such a thing as a Ger­man logic to mak­ing de­ci­sions, such a thing as an Amer­i­can logic to mak­ing de­ci­sions? And what if those log­ics di­verge, if they dif­fer?

Can two na­tional cul­tures – two na­tional busi­ness cul­tures – col­lab­o­rate ef­fec­tively, if they are not aware of how they fun­da­men­tally make de­ci­sions, not aware of where they di­verge in de­ci­sion-mak­ing?
