A bad business decision can go a long way toward alienating allies and making enemies. In recent news, Argentina’s seemingly hasty decision to attempt to reclaim the energy company YPF has tarnished its image as a business-friendly country. Good, effective decisions are logical, creative and defendable. Business consulting firms can help you slow down your decision-making process in a good way — so that you can dismantle complex situations and come to a sound conclusion while reducing the conflicting pressures and emotions that can get in the way of effective decision-making.

The invaluable training that business consultants provide will help you learn about:

- Using your company’s vision and core values to aid decision-making
- Critical thinking processes and standards
- The differences between reasoned choice and coercion
- Asking the right clarifying questions
- Best practices for strong problem analysis and decision-making
