Critical Management Task Is Decision Making
by: Dee Reavis

Most everything a manager does revolves around the decision making steps. Upper management will probably make more of the final decisions. Lower management will probably spend more time with the implementation of decisions. Staff members will likely be involved in the gathering of data and the evaluation of alternatives.

A sign of a poor manager, is one who ignores a problem. He figures that if he does nothing, maybe the problem will go away. That way he can't be blamed for making a wrong decision. An organization with many of these managers is in real danger.

Knowledge vs. Intuition
by: Dee Reavis

While I am not aware of actual research in this area, there are some definite reasons why you would use one over the other.

One big factor is time. A military commander does not have time to follow a rigid model or use a decision matrix. He must make a decision quickly or jeopardize his mission. The same is true of athletes or anyone that in a time critical position. Experience is what decisions are based on in these situations.

Now if you have more time, then you can use formal decision models and decision matrices to make logical thought out decisions.

Waterfall VS Agile

by Banny

Pl tell me more depth of Water fall and Agile Methodology and their concepts. thanks.

Answer
Waterfall and Agile methodologies are commonly used in software development.

With Waterfall the software is developed in stages. When one stage is finished the next stage is started. Testing is started when all stages are completed. Any bugs that are found require reprogramming whole stages.

Agile on the other hand breaks the software project down into small pieces. Each piece is tested as it is completed. Once all the pieces of the puzzle(software) are completed, then they are assembled into one great whole. Any final bugs are solved by reprogramming the individual pieces.

Most modern programmers consider the Waterfall method to be antiquated. The Agile approach lends itself to object programming, which is the preferred approach by most programmers by reason of ease of programming, less complexity of bug solving, and maintainability of completed software.
