  1. Answer:

    Programmed decisions use solutions or decision rules already available from past experience. They are used to solve structured problems which are routine and occur over and over again. As these problems are routine, they allow for decisions to be programmed in advance and then put into use as needed.

    Nonprogrammed decisions craft novel solutions to meet the demands of the unique situation at hand. Managers use nonprogrammed decisions to deal with unstructured problems that are new or unusual situations full of ambiguities and information deficiencies. They often involve choice of strategies and objectives in some situations of uncertainty.
