I’ve been studying decision-making at the top for many years, and what I’ve found is that good decisions nearly always result from robust decision processes.

In fact, when I and my colleagues at Bain & Co. conduct postmortems into decisions, we find that just five mistakes account for the vast majority of poor decisions.
