Business - Decision Making , Essay
Decision making in organizations is a necessary and daily occurrence. Using the text and other resources, write a 5-page paper in response to the following problem statement: You learn that a certain important organizational decision must be made by a group but suspect a better decision might be made by an individual. What theories/rationales would you use in deciding whether an individual or a group decision would be most beneficial for the organization?
Use the following APA formatted headings to help organize your paper:
• Compare and contrast the pros and cons of group decision making versus individual decision making; this section should be the longest portion of your paper and discuss some of the theories studied in your chapter readings. (3-4 pages)
• Desert Survival Experience: Write one to two paragraphs on what you learned during the Desert Survival Experience. Did the experience give you some insight on how to work effectively with a virtual team?
• Experiential: Include how the decision-making topic applies to you (perhaps a personal experience) and what you have learned about group versus individual decision making. The final section of your paper should meet the minimum of 5 required pages of content.
NOTE: Since this paper has a personal experience section, you may use the first-person writing style (i.e.: in my personal experience; in reviewing my response to the situation, I found….)
A minimum of three quotations (one quotation must be from a book and one must be from a professional journal) is required with corresponding citations and references, using the MSL APA Guidelines or the APA Manual (6th ed.) for in-text citations and the reference page listing. All references must be authored within the last three years. Use 12 pt. font; Times New Roman, and double space the paper: include an APA title page and reference page; APA title page, and reference page do not count as one of the five content pages for the paper. Note: Do not use Wikipedia or a Blog as reference resources. Also, do not submit your paper in the PDF format. You must use Microsoft Word for all papers.
