Critical Decision Making for Auditors:
Deciding How to Decide
“In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing.
The worst thing you can do is nothing.”
Who decided to go with New Coke?
It got out of hand before I could do anything!
It wasn’t my choice!
The ability to make critical decisions is totally dependent upon accurately defining a risk or problem, framing risks related to the solutions, handling personal bias, and adherence to governance and process. We have all either made or seen the results when a critical decision is made using the “shotgun” or “ready-fire-aim” approaches. People die and business go under due to poor decision making.
Poor decisions are based on personal and professional basis people just believing something will never happen to them and a number of other factors that are explored in the session. Well defined critical decision governance and process prevents secondary problems from arising resulting in a higher probability of successful outcomes.
