    Please help with the following assignment. I need to write a 750-1000 word essay on this systematic decision making scenario. If you could provide a nice breakdown of detail of about 250 words, I'd greatly appreciate it. The assignment is as follows. Thanks!

    "As manager, you have been notified that the per-mile expenses reported by your top salesperson justifies securing a company vehicle for her corporate activities. Using the systematic step-by-step decision-making process learned within the module, determine whether the organization should lease or buy a car. Since no specific automobile is identified, make the leave v. buy decision on a qualitative rather than a quantitative basis; for example, evaluate aspects of depreciation, expenses, maintenance costs, insurance, and anything else relevant.

    Write a 750 to 1000 word composition employing the six-step decision-making process relative to the required automobile lease-versus-buy decision. Deliver a response in paragraph form, not a step-by-step list of points. Your essay should conclude with a final decision as well as a brief explanation concerning how the choice is to be assessed, with feedback, in a future period."
