Hi,

Another interesting assessment. Have you completed the learning style assessment? One approach to help you with an assignment like this one is to provide an illustrative example by discussing my scores, which you can use to complete your own assessment. I attached my scores. I also attached an article that discusses organizational learning and managerial competence.

RESPONSE:

When you have completed the assessment, to the degree that you are able to, think about it for a bit; then respond to the following points:

Q1: a brief summary of your experience taking the assessment.

AN: It was a positive experience. As I did the questions, I realized that I used various modes of learning, and the results collaborated that. Some of the questions were more difficult to answer than others, which I usually responded as a 1. Others were clearly a 2. It seemed to clarify to me some of the ways I approach questions, problems and the world around me.

Q2: the degree to which your learning style(s) as indicated by the assessment fits your self-image, or constitutes a surprise in some ways.

AN: For the most part, it fits my self-image of using various modes of learning. What surprised me was that I scored highest on solitary, but makes sense when I recall the questions and it explains how group projects in school bothered me, and I usually ended up doing most of the work.

Decision making and external factors that influence it

Sometimes social influences and societal pressures can influence decision making for the better and sometimes for the worse. In addition to these pressures, there are risks that need to be evaluated and measured when making decisions. In this assignment, you will reflect on decisions you made using social influence, persuasion, and risk taking that went awry.
Examine a time when you were involved in decision making that went awry as a result of protocols, social norms, or persuasive techniques. If you do not want to use an example from your business or personal experience, you can select a journal article on which you can base your assignment. Here are some key words to help you find an article for this assignment:
• Decision making
• Risk taking
• Persuasion
• Social heuristics
Address the following
• Describe a decision-making scenario using your business experience, personal decision making or cited journal article; include an example of the decision-making process, describe the risk, and whether persuasion was used. What were the social heuristics?
• Explain the incentives in this scenario. Were they effective?
• Identify the risks and the potential decision biases in your scenario. Propose the corrective steps that should have been taken to overcome these biases. If a risk assessment was conducted how did this affect the decision-making process?
• Analyze your scenario for what happened in terms of social heuristics. Explain how decisions were made and the social factors that shaped the decision-making environment.
• Discuss the greatest challenges to sound decision-making in your scenario.
• Critique the decision-making process used by the sponsor(s) and leader(s) of the decision. Identify the mistakes made by the sponsor(s), leader(s), and team members or others impacted by the decision during the implementation of the decision.
