I'm trying to understand the difference between 决策 and 决定. It seems like 决策 is used more formally and in the case of business contexts more (e.g. 战略决策 - strategic decision)。 But, I wasn't sure if that was entirely rue.

For example, could I say 在京东所有重要的决策由刘强东拍板

or should I say 决定?

Thanks for your help!

  • Your first example is right, it can't be replaced with 决定. – wolfrevo May 3 '16 at 9:45

决策is a noun and can only be used as a noun for example 这是一个非常重要的决策。this is a very important decision. 决定 is a verb but also a noun verb example 你要决定你想去哪。you need to decide where you want to go noun example 这是老板的决定,不是我的。this is the boss's decision, not mine. hope this helps. P.S. I am Chinese.

decide --- 决定(verb)

decision --- 决定(noun)

policy decision --- 决策

decision making --- 决策

decision theory --- 决策论

It depends on what authority (or veto power maybe) that 刘强东 has. Also it sounds redundant to say 重要的决策, can you think of any 不重要的决策?

If I were to say it, it's either 在京东所有的决策由刘强东拍板 or 在京东所有重要的决定由刘强东拍板

For example, could I say 在京东所有重要的决策由刘强东拍板

決策 is strategy, a noun.

決定 is "to determine", roughly used as a verb:

by the way, 决 (u+51b3) is, well, not ... it should be 決 (u+6c7a), have a look of this page:

http://humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/lexi-mf/search.php?word=決

it states clearly: 決﹒行流也﹒从水从夬

三點﹒部首「水」也﹒兩點﹒部首「冫」也, get it :)

  • for 决定 used as noun see iciba:decision,in today's news:日本外相岸田文雄在日中外长会谈中,向中国外长王毅转达了日本政府的这一决定。 – user6065 May 2 '16 at 22:45

    决 is the simplified character for 決, with a long long history dating back to Han Dynasty. – Stan May 3 '16 at 7:04
  • i knew it. well, 决 is not in the 國語辭典, nor 漢語多功能字庫; then 說文解字 stated clearly 从水从夬. 从水, the radical should be 氵(U+6c35). – 水巷孑蠻 May 3 '16 at 8:12

决策更倾向于一个“策略”(策) 决定更强调一个“结果”(定) 决定不光可以做动词也可以做名词 决策一般用作名词
