Better decisions clearly produce better human lives and endeavors, but decision making is not taught in our schools. Edward M. Collins, former Vice Director of the U. S. Defense Intelligence Agency, has extensive experience in managing and supporting government and industry decision making activities. His compelling short book Structured Decision Making for Managing Work and Life, based on that experience and much research, provides proven processes that can produce early and continuing improvement in decision making. It draws widely upon human experience and thought to address rigorous problem definition, factors influencing decisions, critical scrutiny of information and assumptions, reasoning methods, sources of error, and techniques selectively adaptable to individual life and work situations.
