What is included with this book?


A proven decision-making system guides readers to the right choice every time Make Up Your Mind outlines author Hal Mooz's proprietary system for decision-making, Decision Typing. This program consists of three decision-making models, including: the Decision Type Model, which characterizes what is at stake with any decision; the Decision Solution Model, which frames the most suitable alternatives; and a Decision Judgment Model, which provides ten bases for judging alternatives, some of which may be defensible and others that, although popular, are not defensible. These models guide the reader through a creative process to the most promising alternatives. A "decision fit" reader will become skilled in specifying the decision and context and determining the decision type. From there, the reader will be able to: Identify and obtain comparative information Knowledgably selecting the right judgment basis and skillfully apply the appropriate judgment process Effectively manage power and peer pressure in order to objectively make a judgment Decisively implement an action Get a comprehensive view of all of your challenges. Implement the Decision Typing system and consistently arrive at the right decisions.
