  2. What should be the primary determinant of the amount of effort and resources going into the making of any particular decision?
  3. The “Pareto Principle” has often been described as the “80/20 Rule.”  Write out an example (a single sentence will do) indicating your understanding of the 80/20 Rule and thus, the Pareto Principle.

Enumerate all of the steps included in the basic decision-making process and, in your own words, describe what is occurring at each step.  Be certain to include the role of those steps when each may not be fully evident as in programmed or supposedly “automatic” decisions. Also thoroughly explain and evaluate the role of follow-up in the decision-making process.
