5 Mar

Well this unfortunately is my last ever post , cue the sad music. So just to make your life a bit easier by summarising the topic and giving some helpful links and videos to help you understand the topic more.

In this first post I gave a brief introduction into the whole decision making issue , what it is , the different levels , and what systems you can use to aid decision-making. https://eternalsunshineoftheismind.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/using-is-for-decision-making/

The next post dealt with the various decision making levels of an organization , which include the owners ,the managers and the employees.

After that I discussed the different types of IS used in decision making like MIS, DSS, ESS and GDSS.

In a twist in events I looked at the world of data visualization which is another form of IS and makes the information clearer to the decision maker.
