Various business decisions have recurrent themes: whether to the outsource production or to the support functions, what level of production and pricing to establish, whether to accept the special orders with the private label of branding or the special pricing, and many more

Though such models are not perfect in every case, they surely are effective in stimulating correct thought. The apparently obvious answer may not always yield truly correct or best decision. Therefore, subsequent chapters will provide insight into the logic and methods/technologies that need to be employed to manage these types of the business decisions.
