In real-world, making the right decision at the right time is very challenging. Additional complexity is related to the fact that, a change in one part may propagate across multiple subsystems and therefore, it is very difficult to predict how decisions behave. To respond this need, this paper contributes a conceptual framework to present a novel perspective on modelling decisions, so-called Decision Propagation System – DPS. It is an intelligent approach to reflect how organisational dynamics and information dependencies can affect decision propagations, thus helping make Smart decisions.
