Taking the decision
In an interactive and inclusive process involving all the concerned parties, form an opinion from the information collected for its effectiveness and efficiency. Use it to take the decision. Has the decision taken help in solving the problem at hand? Was the decision satisfactory and took into account all the views of concerned parties? A decision taken may need to be examined closely and refined, and modified to meet differing needs over time.
Remember that implementing the decision (actors and actions), as well as monitoring and evaluating the actions taken, are integral parts of the decision!
