Preparing to make big-ticket investment decisions | McKinsey & Company

Preparing to make big-ticket investment decisions | McKinsey & Company | Cybersecurity and Technology | Scoop.it
When the stakes couldn’t be higher, the quality of the decision making can make all the difference. Process improvements can help. A McKinsey & Company article.To get at what it takes to prepare for such high-stakes decisions, we interviewed executives from sectors where big-ticket investments regularly arise—natural resources, utilities, heavy industrials, and even pharmaceuticals—and pooled our collective experience. Despite variations among sectors and projects, we concluded that many good practices in interviewees’ decision-making processes could be more widely applied, both within capital-intensive industries and indeed in any company that faces a material investment decision. These include examining the handful of characteristics that are most critical to a project early in the process of evaluating an investment proposal, employing both quantitative and qualitative insight in risk discussions, and keeping decision biases in check.
