Individual Paper Individual Paper MGT230 Management Theory and Practice Individual Paper 2 Individual Paper Decision making is a very vital part of life it is necessary for survival whether the circumstances are major or minor People sometimes make good or bad decision based on their level of judgment In business there are six stages in the decision making process The steps in the decision making process are identify and diagnose the problem generate alternative solutions evaluate alternatives make the choice implement the decision and evaluate the decision I had to make a very difficult decision to drop out of college or work two jobs and attempt to send myself though school at 19 years old This decision was not made overnight but I concluded after many intense thoughts and some going back and forth During my decision making process I used all the steps of the decision making process I may not have used them correctly or in order but I used each of them at least once during my decision Bateman amp Snell 2011 First I had to identify and diagnose the problem For me the problem was that I was no longer financially capable of paying my own way through school I knew that dropping out of school was not the ideal situation to be in and that I would be disappoint myself as well as others that looked up to me I was always the brain in my family so taking a route other than the one that was expected of me would be hard for them to accept as well I had enough money saved up for one more semester so I decided to sign up for classes I knew that once the semester was over I could no longer sit around and think about my decision I had to make one Bateman amp Snell 2011 After identifying that I had a problem I was at the point in the decision making process Individual Paper 3 where I had to think about the alternatives I came up with taking out a student loan working fulltime to save money for school or joining the Army These were all logical decisions and they all supported my goal which was to get a college education I was running out of time so I had to evaluate my decisions I made a list of the pros and cons of all three choices Taking out a student loan is a quick fix but long term it would cost me much more than I was willing to pay I thought maybe this is not such a good idea Working fulltime to save up for school was a good idea but I would be spending way more time not going to school than I anticipated I did not want to be caught up in the working world and be so comfortable that I never give myself the opportunity to finish school Joining the Army was a great idea because they pay for school and I would be employed but it means that I was putting my life on the line especially because the country was at war Ethics Resource Center 2009 I had very little support during this process because my family was against all my options especially joining the Army After weighing the pros and cons I made the choice to join the Army because it meant that I would have a career and I would have the opportunity to finish school I was very nervous about this decision because I hated the outdoors and waking up early I knew that I had to sacrifice to achieve my goals so I did I went to the recruiter s office two weeks before the end of my semester and told them I would like to join the Army They went over the benefits and the potential career fields I told my recruiter that I had two week left in school and I would like to leave for the Army as soon as possible after that Bateman amp Snell 2011 I was now in the Army less than a week after my semester ended It was not what I expected but I was willing to endure because my goal was on the line The training process was Individual Paper 4 extremely difficult but when I got to my first duty station life was becoming normal again After being in the Army for five years I evaluate my decision daily to see ifI made the right decision I conclude that I did and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome I am still sticking with my goal and so far I have my Associates degree I have a very promising career and at the age of 25 I have accomplished goals that I not anticipate achieving until I was in my late thirties or forties Ethics Resource Center 2009 My decision making process was identical to the one in the text even though I had many hiccups along the way My decision could have been a lot easier if I had the steps written down it would have owed much smoother I learned to use a decision making process that is identical to the one in the text early in my military career and has been using it ever since no matter how small or big the decision may be I would recommend this process to anyone making a decision Individual Paper 5 References Bateman T amp Snell S 2011 Management Leading amp Collaborating in a Competitive World New York NY McGrawHill Irwin Ethics Resource Center 2009 The Decision Making Process Retrieved from httpWWWethicsorgresourceplusdecisionmakingprocess
