Some of the other theorists recognize the importance of decisiveness when filling a leadership role in an organization, from CEO to project manager. They include Skulmoski, Kliem, Anderson, and Gadeken.
Too often, however, project managers make decisions too prematurely or too late. When deciding too prematurely, they make decisions without consulting appropriate people. When deciding too late, they sometimes wait for approval from too many people or the wrong people. Either way, decisions can become biased or incomplete, further leading to greater problems later in the project life cycle and beyond. Of course, it is one thing to perform the mechanics of decision making, it is another thing to involve the right people in the right way to come up with the right decision at the right moment.
