This paper makes a strong case that there exists an underlying pattern to decision problems. To exploit this pattern, the decision order framework is developed to guide researchers and decision makers toward appropriate solution methodologies. This process is called alignment and is based on the duality of decision problems. The process is validated using a number of examples from quantitative research, decision-making, economic theory, entrepreneurship, theory of the firm, education, and eCommerce. Extensions to the decision orders framework are presented to offer insight into the evolution and decomposition of complex decision problems.
