Decision-making in a crisis: What every leader needs to know
January 01, 1970
Introduction Managing is a constant job. It's never done. There is no sense of completion, and managers just move from one crisis to another solving problems and putting out fires. Henry Mintzberg argues that managers work at an unrelenting pace; their activities are typically characterized by brevity, variety, fragmentation and discontinuity, and they are strongly oriented to action. Managers need to be able to constantly switch from highly complex tasks to incredibly mundane ones on a moment-by-moment basis. Making decisions is a large part of a manager's job since he or she is often the one with the final say. Pulling the trigger on a new project or addressing malfunctioning products are examples of daily decisions for managers that have far-reaching consequences for employees, stakeholders, and organizations.
