The ways I would address this issue are: 1) Having the ability to browse through all sources in as short an amount of time as possible while being able to take notes as one goes through the sources, 2) Being able to organize the notes any academic writer will have taken while reading/browsing through the sources and having the ability to tie into the main thesis (argument) for the paper these sources are to be used 3) Having the ability to condense from having to quote a huge section of one long passage from one page ...

You are the Director of Human Resources for a prosperous Travel Agency

You are the Director of Human Resources for a prosperous Travel Agency "Destination Adventure!" The company has been so successful that in the past two years the number of employees within your company has tripled and many of the company policies need to be changed. After a recent review you've discovered one of those is the company "performance appraisal/performance evaluation" program.

It appears many managers and supervisors are being inconsistent in the way they rate or evaluate their employees. You want to identify and head off any potential problems.

Your preliminary analysis has discovered it's not a process or administrative issue but the way in which your managers and supervisors rate and measure their employee's performance. Before you can take any corrective actions (training, etc.) it will be important for you to do two things; (1) identify specific problems & (2) come up with solutions to those problem to prevent them from reoccurring,

Identify and describe a minimum of 3 problems, relating to decision making that occur when managers complete performance reviews. Since the focus of our class is on decision making focus on problems that relate to decision issues in your findings. Be sure you identify each problem separately (don't put all your findings in a single large block paragraph).

Provide specific suggestions for each of the problems you identified so that supervisors can eliminate or reduce each of the problems identified. Try to avoid "general" recommendations as they rarely cover or help correct all the problems you will identify.
References are to be provided in APA style.
