    I need help with the following paper:

    After reading the Decisions in Paradise Business Scenario, assume the role of Nik, and use your current employer (or one with which you are familiar) as the organization represented by Alex, Nik, and Chris.

    Prepare a paper, in which you develop the preliminary considerations for your organization establishing a greater presence on Kava by:

    ? Defining the issues that appear in this business scenario.

    ? Discussing the forces that are involved in formulation of the problem.

    ? Using problem formulation tools and techniques, describe the organizational and environmental obstacles in a way that considers various key stakeholders that will be impacted by decisions.

    ? Applying critical thinking in the decision-making process.

    Issue 4: If the HR Department had not provided Nik with the appropriate training, he could have taken it upon himself to read up on the culture.

    3. The employees
    4. The ...
