Once a decision has been made, it still needs to be implemented into the real world. Although a decision is a commitment to a course of action, it is important to consider the stages beyond mere commitment and the issues that are encountered during the execution of this commitment. Furthermore, although a decision may be an internal commitment or preference, in many cases decisions made by an individual are done so within an environment of multiple, competing individuals and agencies that may (or may not) share the individual’s priorities and values. As such, the commitment made by the individual may not reflect the decision that is executed. This chapter examines the wider social pressures that are present within the decision-making environment and also how these can interfere with an individual’s preference, resulting in changes in commitment and decision errors. This chapter also examines the barriers to executing decisions.
