When a decision is required of you, there is a lot of things you need to take into account: set an appropriate deadline, make your decision, and accept responsibility for the results; One of them is the time you have to take that decision.
Now I’m waiting a decision from a stakeholder and I’m already evaluating the impact of the decision over time because I’m worried about this issue.
In my honest opinion this stakeholder is delaying the decision, that is in fact a decision.
Then, what’s the problem I really see in this issue?
The problem is that this stakeholder doesn’t want to assume the responsibility of this decision… but anyway that’s another problem…
