    Capstone Project Help: Critical Analysis and Resolutions

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    For those identified problems/issues with many causes and effects, there are potentially many solutions, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The solutions may impact just one of the effects or may impact several effects. The goal this week is to generate as many solutions as possible based on the critical analysis of the problem created earlier. At this stage, don't worry about whether the solution is effective. Simply generate as many potential solutions as you can. Once you have generated a list, select two potential resolutions and identify the advantages and disadvantages of each solution. You will share these with your peers; pay particular attention to their responses about which solution might work best in alleviating the problem/issue you selected.

    To prepare:

    Review the "Problem Solving Template," located in the Resources area on the left navigation bar.
    Review the causes and effects that you generated
    Review the critical analysis narrative that you prepared.
    Think about some potential resolutions to your identified problem and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

    two potential resolutions to the identified problem/issue and explain their advantages and disadvantages. Provide specific example

    Capstone Project Help: Resolutions

    Conceptualising possible resolutions in a Capstone project requires the utilization of certain principles. In finding solutions, there are a number of employable strategies. In this case, I think a cooperative strategy between agents in the social dynamics impacting issue is most useful. Cooperative strategies, according to Jung (2003), "enable fast conflict resolution convergence in large scale multiagent applications under real-time constraints." Boundless (2015) further explains cooperative strategies as follows, "A strategic alliance is a cooperation where each member expects the benefit from cooperation will outweigh the cost of individual efforts." All involved take on a cooperative relationship to (Boundless, 2015), "pursue a set of agreed-upon goals or to meet a critical business need while remaining independent organizations." This is often utilized by corporations working together in mergers and acquisitions. But in the case of the issue of teen DUI resolutions, it is applicable too in that finding solutions involves various groups and organizations sharing the same interest - to lower down the number of deaths, to eradicate teen DUI tragedies, if not teen alcohol abuse altogether.

    Causes & Effects based on Critical Analysis

    Teen DUI and subsequently, car crashes and death resulting from Teen DUIs are caused primarily by a number of factors - social, environmental and issues in relation to policies, laws and mechanisms that are supposed to deter and stop teens from accessing alcohol, abusing alcohol and driving while under the influence which in turn leads to death. The following resources explain these further:
    1. DUIs are the biggest killer of adolescents in the US. Supporting data (California Courts, 2015), "Eight teens die every day in DUI crashes. Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in the U.S. In 2003, teens accounted for 10% of the U.S. population but were involved in 13% of car crash fatalities."
    2. There is an issue with ...
