    The use of a utility scale direct approach helps to measure the value of a decision numerically in order of risk probability. The researcher will choose from five considerable job opportunities and identify the objectives used in making the decision. These job opportunities are within institutions of higher education and include: assistant professor, assistant director of multicultural student affairs, associate dean, professional development advisor, and grant writer. This information will discuss the range of outcomes, the utility scale using direct approach, the correspondence between compensation and job satisfaction, and an illustrative graph of plotted points.

    Decision Making Objectives:

    The researcher must choose which of the five job opportunities is the most practical based on a series of objectives. These objectives include: location, compensation, opportunities for advancement, and the institutions reputation. The location is important because the researcher is not interested in long commutes to and from work, so the closest location would be ideal. The researcher is looking for a generous amount of compensation considering her level of education and years of experience working in higher education. It is also important the job has opportunities for growth and ...

    Solution Summary

    Decision making includes a series of processes which identify the consequences and value benefits using scaled measurements. The outcomes of a decision are not a certain determination, and rather risky. The use of a utility scale direct approach helps to measure the value of a decision numerically in order of risk probability (Hunink & Glasziou, 2003). The researcher will choose from five considerable job opportunities and identify the objectives used in making the decision. These job opportunities are within institutions of higher education and include: assistant professor, assistant director of multicultural student affairs, associate dean, professional development advisor, and grant writer. This paper will discuss the range of outcomes, the utility scale using direct approach, the correspondence between compensation and job satisfaction, and an illustrative graph of plotted points.
