Introduction #section1

The purpose of the present study is to examine the relationship between decision making, decision content, and organizational culture in faith-based organizations. Contrary to what other researchers have reported about decision content, this study argues that three major values influence decision makers and the way they make and execute decisions. These values are the emphasis on organizational mission, guardianship, and cohesiveness. The findings suggest that training, mentorship, and a clear separation between the management and the founders of the organization are needed to improve decision making. The influences of these values and their practical implications are discussed in the context of an American Islamic center.
