Reliable decision support systems should provide accurate and complete disclosure of available options, while maintaining required confidentiality and integrity to enable effective responses. The ‘quality of management’ depends heavily upon having managers evaluate alternatives and select (from the available options) as many correct responses as possible. To ensure managerial quality, most managers are under observation for situational responses impacting the entity. Thus, the ratio of decisional hits to misses must weigh favorably in the direction of hits to retain management status within most organizational formations. In other words, a regular pattern of failure in making appropriate decisions usually disqualifies an employee from retaining directional authority within an entity.
