In today’s volatile and intensely competitive environment, it is evident that the businesses and non-business organizations across the globe must conduct themselves with utmost efficiency to achieve performance excellence to survive and thrive. Hence, decision making, in all functional areas and at all levels of management, play a crucial role in achieving the desired excellence by making the best use of the available resources. Decision-makers need to appreciate and deal with technical, cultural, behavioral, social, and environmental interdependencies while making decisions. Also, they require adapting and utilizing various decision science’s tools and techniques for efficient and effective decisions, as well as promote global sustainability at the micro and macro levels.
