Abstract : One could say, if absolutes were appropriate, that making better decisions is an objective of every organization. But what exactly does this mean? Theoretically, better decisions will translate into improved organizational performance; however, it is often difficult to discern the underlying reasons for organizational performance. To gain insight into past execution and to inform future decision-making, organizations explore and investigate past performance by harnessing data and analytic techniques.
