The author examines and reviews researches concerning how managers can cope or relate to stakeholders in decision making. The journal exposed the fact that managers are ill-prepared to deal with the issue of stakeholder ambiguity hence are compelled to revert to formulaic decision-making frameworks, such as discounted cash flow and cost-benefit analysis, which misinterpret the challenges. The author disclosed that managers often ignore the importance of secondary stakeholders in decision making at the expense of the organization. This journal will greatly help in maximizing the impact of stakeholders on executive decisions.
