From observation to decision-making : How an information system can improve strategic decision-making

Abstract : To decide, we must understand, to understand, we must observe and analyze. In one way or another, intelligence is based on observation process. Decision comes after understanding his environment. Also, observationis turns into knowledge with given meaning to things and determining what to do. Decision support tools are increasingly used, the example of information systems based on the concept of observatory and interpretation of data. How do we pass from observation to knowledge and knowledge to decision making through a support decision tool? We believe that decision process can be greatly optimized by observation, operation and interpretation of the behavior of indicators through an information system designed as an aid in the decision. To support our remarks, we will use concrete examples inspired by the Dynamic Observatory applied to Cameroon Educational System (DOES) which, like a dashboard, it is composed of a set of indicators. It allows to observe, monitor and alert on the environment of education.
