Judgment and Decision-Making – Employment Skill. Different employers look for different things, of course, but decision-making skills are sought by most companies for many different positions. In general, applicants who can demonstrate an ability to identify all the options and compare them in terms of both costs and effectiveness have an advantage over those who can’t. As organizations collect more and more data, there will be an even greater need for workers who can analyze it and use it to make intelligent decisions. The good judgment also involves knowing how to get buy-in from a colleague, or making a strong suggestion to a manager (even if it might not make you popular).
