From the Paper:

""Decision-making is the cognitive process of selecting a course of action from among multiple alternatives" (Wikipedia 2005). The effect of the decision-making process will result in a choice. The choice may be derived through rational or irrational reasoning as well as factual basis or assumptions. Businesses today will invest the time and money necessary to train associates in critical thinking skills as well as decision-making models. A common decision-making model is the Analytic Hierarchy Process."
