Authority decision

Authority decisions, made by a manager or an executive, alter the team decision-making process by changing team decisions to recommendations. In this situation, teams gather information, create and examine alternatives, and select the best one. Then, the process is turned over to whoever will make the final decision.

There are many disadvantages to authority decisions. If teams know they are only offering a recommendation, they might settle for fewer and lower quality alternatives. Also, members do not have to accept full responsibility for this type of decision. Members might not be as committed to a decision they did not make, especially if they are responsible for implementing it.
