Some decisions are easy. We don't even think about them. We choose between cornflakes or muesli, orange juice or apple juice, tea or coffee. These decisions don't take a lot of time or thought and we don't expect to have to justify them afterwards. Business decisions are usually more difficult and have significant consequences: which contractor to select, which vehicles should be included in the fleet, where to site delivery depots or manufacturing plant, what capacity the business should have. These decisions will have to be justified to others, and might be the subject of detailed scrutiny later on. And it usually will take a significant amount of effort to collect the information needed to make the decision.
