McIntyre argues that the decision-making strategy you use should depend on factors such as:
- Availability of information.
- Superiority of one decision.
- Acceptance of the decision by others.
- Amount of time to decide.
- Make the decision by yourself.
- Get information from others, then decide by yourself.
- Before deciding, consult with others one-on-one to get their views.
- Before deciding, have a group discussion to explore options.
- Ask the group to reach a consensus independently.
