Production Supervisor was asked...July 3, 2012

Tell me about a time when you had to make a decision without all the information you needed to make the decision. What was the decision and what was the outcome.

7 Answers

I would have to rely on personal experience and how to prepare for the unexpected. It is difficult to make a decision without all the information needed but history of how similar situations have played out will ensure a reasonable outcome. Less

When I don't have all the information I need to make a decision, I try to pool my resources and gather information. Do some research, ask other employees, so that I can be as educated as possible going into the decision. Then I trust my leadership skills and if the outcome is not as expected, I would try to make further decisions that could help the situation. Less

I was asked how much lean and safety experience I had.
