Read the sim case, apply to your simulation. Asses your critical thinking, ethical decision making, and written communication skills… don’t overthink it. 

  • All assignments should be typed, single-spaced, 1000 word or less, using 12-point Times New Roman type with 1-inch margins on all 4 sides in a word doc/docx.
    • Notice I said 1000 words or less. No page limit, I expect graphs, charts, and tables where appropriate.
      • Graphs/charts/pictures/bibliography/heading do not count toward word count.
      • Only the ‘text’ in the body of the paper count toward the word count. 
  • Adhere to the 4 C’s of writing website read (Links to an external site.), and here is a video of the 4 C’s of writing short video (Links to an external site.).
  • All citations should be in APA format.
  • Assignments that do not meet these requirements will receive an automatic 20% deduction.
  • Frequent wording and grammatical errors will also result in deductions.
  • TurnItIn or other plagiarism detection software will be utilized.

Apply the 6 steps of Management Decision Making (MDM) to the below problem. Here is a link to a video that covers the 6 step MDM (Links to an external site.).

  1. Recognition of Decision Requirement – Identify problem or opportunity
  2. Diagnosis and Analysis – Analyze underlying causal factors
  3. Develop Alternatives – Define feasible alternatives
  4. Selection of Desired Alternative – Alternative with most desirable outcome
  5. Implementation of Chosen Alternative – Use of managerial, administrative, and persuasive abilities to execute chosen alternative
  6. Evaluation and Feedback – Gather information about effectiveness

Make sure to use data, logic, and critical thinking.  

An example from a undergrad class of MDM done a different sim. I expect more development, citation, and APA formatting from MBAs; but remember, keep it complete, clear, concise (you do have a word limit, not a word minimum), and correct… don’t overthink it, remember this assignment is to asses your critical thinking, ethical decision making, and written communication skills.
