The Decision Book: 50 Models for Strategic Thinking by Mikael Krogerus (Author), Roman Tschäppeler (Author), Philip Earnhart (Illustrator), Jenny Piening (Translator) is an important resource on the intricacies  of making decisions. Initially, decision-making may be approached by simplifying issues, taking a pragmatic approach, summing up key areas, visualizing a solution, organizing data and generalizing the solution set.
 
The authors remind readers that leaders can decide issues on an immediate basis, delegate parts of tasks to others, make a decision on when to decide key elements or postpone a decision to some future time.
 
Decision-makers are faced with a multiplicity of choices which include having to make an unavoidable decision, possessing the capacity to decide an issue and wanting to decide an issue with more than a modicum of complexity.
 
The authors present a Johari window which consists of elements of a decision known to decision-makers, as well as the unknowns. When an important decision needs to be made, there are hindrances, most critical aspects, danger points and critical associations.
 
Decision-making also involves drivers of a decision. A driver can refer to a thought in deep memory, a dream or an upcoming reality which cannot be put aside.
 
The book also contains strategies for conflict resolution. The resolution of a conflict can involve flight, fight or an accommodative mode for parties who can reach a consensus on a complex subject.
 
The Decision Book by Krogerus and Tschappeler is an important advance in the area of complex decision-making and articulation. The book is easy to understand and implement.
