Can you C the necessity of Information Systems in Decision Making?

8 Mar

For any information system to be used successfully as a decision making tool in an organisation it must first meet the 6 C’s, these are six requirements used to evaluate the decision making process.

1. Construct: An organisation must first construct a clear picture of what must be decided and what information system would be best suited for the decision.

2. Compile: Compile a list of requirements that must be met, this gives the information system a framework to run by.

3. Collect: An information system is then used to collect information alternatives that meet the requirements.

4. Compare: The system then compares alternatives that meet the requirements.

5. Consider: This is where the organisation uses the information given by the information system to evaluate the “what might go wrong” factor with each alternative.

6. Commit: The organisation then must commit to a decision and follow through with it, thanks to the help of their trusty information system.
