Decision-making in institutions has been the object of study by countless authors and scientific disciplines. This activity, despite being inherent to the human being, is manifested on a daily basis in the actions of managers. This research addresses this issue from an Information Management approach with the aim of investigating its main characteristics in the institutional context, with emphasis on the actions of the manager and his complex action in the decision-making process and information processing. Documentary analysis is used to address the interactions of Information Management with management approaches and emphasize the presence of information as a strategic resource of the institution. The research emphasizes the relevance of Information Management, the dynamizing effect of the action of directing, and actions are proposed which can guide the actions of the manager in the institutional context.
