The term decision is from the mid-15c., "act of deciding," from Old French décision (14c.), from Latin decisionem (nominative decisio) "a decision, settlement, agreement," noun of action from past-participle stem of decidere "to decide, determine," literally "to cut off," from de "off" (see de-) + caedere "to cut."
Decision makers can be difficult to find. The executive committee is often officially responsible for making a company's big decisions while another, unofficial group, led by the CEO, seems to hold the real decision-making power. Although that informal “kitchen cabinet” lacks a proper name, everyone knows who's in it. Timely emails can be effective at enticing decision makers onto the phone, especially if you’re able to mention one of their competitors. Most decision makers scan emails so the shorter the better.
