What are characteristics of decision processes?
by Dan Power
In the past 50 years, a number of authors have identified and described characteristics that vary in organization decision processes. Characteristics are attributes of the decision, the process or the situation, for example, risk, routinization or anticipated amount of discussion. Evaluating the level of these characteristics can assist in determining if computerized decision support will be useful in a decision process. Also, the level of some characteristics may help prescribe what type of decision support will be useful and is a good fit. So let's examine in some detail the characteristics models of Snyder (1958), Hage (1980), and the Bradford Group (1981).
