Assignment 1
Assignment 1: The Decision Making Process
Instructions

Assignment 1 (Due in Week 4)

Purpose:

In the first four weeks of this class students explored the
idea of how people make decisions and how the application of a decision making
process can increase the likelihood of a better set of decision outcomes.
Students will be assigned a case study that they will read and apply a decision
making process to make a decision. The case study can be found under week 4
content area.

The purpose of this assignment is for students to
demonstrate they understand that decision making is a process that can be used
to make decisions with better outcomes for the business.

Assignment Instructions:

Step 1: Review “How
to Analyze a Case Study” under Week 4 Content.

Step 2: Create a Word
or Rich Text Format (RTF) document that is double-spaced, 12-point font. The final product will be between 3-4 pages
in length excluding the title page and reference page.

Step 3: Review the
grading rubric for the assignment

Step 4: Follow this
format:

Title page with title, your name, the course, the

of a paper.
Step 5: In writing a
case study, the writing is in the third person.
What this means is that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or

writing). If uncertain how to write in

Step 6: In writing
