Read the Decisions in Paradise case study and the Business Scenario document attached. You are Nik, and your employer is the organization represented by Alex, Nik, and Chris. Recall that the organization here is the army. Apply a decision-making technique to propose the appropriate solution(s) for your organization to establish a greater presence on Kava by using the following steps:
1) Indicate the decision-making technique that will be used to identify the solution(s). Also, discuss why this is the best technique to be used by your organization.
2) Identify the solution while providing an analysis of the specific steps utilized in applying your selected decision-making technique.
3) Using the definition and various elements of critical thinking addressed, examine the decision-making technique you selected and explain how it influences and/or impacts your proposed solution(s).
1) The steps for decision making that I will take are outlining my objectives, gathering information, developing alternatives, listing the pros and cons of each alternative, making the decision, taking action for implementation, and learning from and reflecting on the decision (Gwo-Hshiung. T, Hshiung Tzeng. G, & Huang.J, 2011).
2) Since the organization is the army, the main objective is to establish a presence in Kava. The other objectives are to reduce the risks of the army, take advantage of opportunities such as fishing, and gas/petroleum drilling and refining, so make the presence self-sustaining economically. The next stage is to gather information. I will gather information about the nature of the presence that the army needs to have in Kava, the number of personnel required to be stationed in Kava, the equipment required to confront disasters in Kava, the infrastructure that will be required for army operations in Kava, and the reaction of the local government, businesses, and people of Kava.
Development of alternatives:
-The first alternative is that the army should be stationed in Kava and help out the government, and people during disasters. The army can buy local products, such as coffee, cocoa, spices, and bananas, and export them.
