Analyzing Investment Decisions

Making significant investment decisions means we must allocate substantial amounts of major resources of people, time, technology, intellectual capital, and, of course, money.

A high-quality decision process requires that our:

  • choices are doable and well formulated,
  • consequences are understood and well explored,
  • preferences are included when comparing the full array of costs and benefits of proposed decisions, and
  • actions taken are focused on getting results.

We want the best decisions to be made for any and all investment opportunities, such as:

  • research to create technical breakthroughs that lead to new products and services,
  • development to improve and update existing technology,
  • timely capital allocations for new manufacturing plants and equipment,
  • marketing programs for the growth of both existing and new businesses, and
  • human resource development of new talent and better organizational structures.
