Strategic Statement:

This is a question regarding your work habits and strategies. The interviewer wants to know less about the type of decision and more about the process of decision making.

Sample Response:

I favor a building backward approach, where I make the big decisions first and build the mid-range and smaller decisions from those. By following a logical progression, all the decisions are relatively easy to make. However, we live in an imperfect world, and there are times when, perhaps, there is no established relationship between decisions that need to be made. Those are the most difficult decisions.
