strategic management

Task description

  1. Arrange to sit in on decision making meetings at the operational and strategic management levels within your organisation.
  2. Note the nature of problems dealt with at each level. Are they tame or wicked?
  3. Note the approach to decision making for each type of problem that you have identified. In particular discuss whether the approaches are qualitative or quantitative in nature. Are the approaches appropriate for the type of problem?
  4. Finally, track the decision making process. Does it comply with rational problem solving approach suggested by Williams(2002)?
  5. Do you have any recommendations for decision makers at various levels in your organisation based on your understanding of theory frameworks?
