Thus the decision-making process is fundamental to management. Almost everything a manager does involves decisions, indeed, some suggest that the management process is decision making. Although managers cannot predict the future, many of their decisions require that they consider possible future events. Often managers must make a best guess at what the future will be and try to leave as little as possible to chance, but since uncertainty is always there, risk accompanies decisions. Sometimes the consequences of a poor decision are slight; at other times they are serious.

当先行词为everything, something, anything, nothing等不定代词时定语从句引导词不可用which, 此句的后半部分 some suggest that ... 是宾语从句。suggest v. 认为，提出，建议（其后的宾语从句多用于虚拟语气）
例如：Although my car is very old,it still runs very well.
