    At the monthly meeting, one of your coworkers stated that "Using the right analysis tool will compensate for inexperienced managers." How would you reply to your coworker?

    Assignment Guidelines:
    Address the following:

    o Do the tools help only in certain situations, such as routine, daily, or rather mundane decisions, like cost controls, quality controls, or staffing questions (in terms of number of people needed)?
    o Do the tools help the finance or accounting arms of a company more than operations managers do?
    o What happens if the data entered is wrong? Analytical tools suffer from the GIGO (garbage in, garbage out) weaknesses, and thus an analysis based on these numbers can be flawed.
    o Can the software and tools replace experienced and seasoned managers? Do computers really think? Do they learn from their mistakes? Can they manipulate or change their environment?

    - Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

    In this task, we are considering a conceptual question/statement. To answer this question/statement you need to consider the four areas that are stated in the task list, and how they relate back to the initial statement from your coworker, (a 'what if' kind of analysis). With each of these questions to consider, there is an obvious counter question. To question one, the counter question would be: Or do they also help in non-routine, periodic and 'lively' situations? For question two, the counter question would be: Or do they benefit the Operations managers just as much as anyone else that would use them? With question three, there really is no 'counter question' as this question is simply asking for input as to what would happen.

    Here you can just give examples of what might happen under this situation, which is really a straightforward issue and should be easy grade points. Again, relate this back to what happens with an inexperienced manager in control. For 'question four' there are several sub questions, each building on the overall idea of the topic.

    This question overall is actually the counter question/statement to the initial statement that your coworker has made to start with, (I.E. if tools can compensate for inexperienced managers, (with the underlying concept and idea that we can eliminate the experienced, seasoned, high paid managers and hire younger, inexperienced lower paid managers and save a lot of money).

    Please answer these questions with responses supported by research that will clarify and support your position. OV score should not go over 15%
