Personal Experience with Decision-Making Models
Decision making models are a new concept and something I do not have experience with. My experience comes from doing research to write this paper.
Examples of Decision Making Models
The decision making models I have experience with are referred to in the course materials for this class.
Critical Thinking and Decision Making Simulation
In using the problem solving scenario called Critical Thinking and Decision Making Training Simulation (2008), a scenario is presented that helps to make critical decisions about a business. The simulation allows for instant feedback. This feedback shows how decisions impact the issues that are being resolved.
Problem Solving Approach: An Example-A Life-Work Scenario
In the example, Problem Solving Approach: An Example-A Life-Work Scenario (2008), I read a document from the University of Phoenix materials section. I was able to use a step by step approach for the nine items discussed in the Problem Scenario Facilitation Approach (2008).
Nine Steps of Decision Making
According to University of Phoenix College Week Two Supplement (2008), nine steps for decision making exist. I have used this process to make a hypothetical decision about my personal life.
Describe the Situation. My wife will have our second child in May of 2009. We need to determine a solution which will allow our children to be cared for while both of us continue our career goals.
Frame the Right Problem. The issue is that we both work full-time. Our jobs are 55 miles apart from each other, and she ends up with most of the duties required to pick up and drop off our children at daycare.
Describe the End State Goals. The goal will be to relieve the stress of us working full-time and knowing our children are well taken care of while we are at work.
My wife can work part-time.
I can stay at home full-time.
We can employ a full-time nanny.
We can move to a daycare...
