1. Set the framework: stand back and review very carefully. What will be the impact of your decisions in one, two, five and ten years’ time? If you cannot see the bigger picture you can never look back on your decisions and fully begin to understand their impact!
  2. Use analytical approaches: strategic decisions are all about a series of stages which includes analysis, exploring solutions and/or next steps, identifying objectives, planning and implementation and never forgetting monitoring.
  3. Consider outcomes and possible consequences: fully explore all of the options available and be prepared to spend time consulting with those who clearly know more than you do! Ensure everyone involved in the decision-making process fully understands the stated objectives and also what is at stake for the organisation.

Good Luck!
