Checkpoint 1 - Decision-Making ProcessBy: Lori Settles, email@example.comFor: Management Theory and PracticeTeacher: Carl Van DomelenThe decision I had to make was to leave my husband or stay in the abusive relationship. I decided to leave and take my children with me. When making this decision the first step I took was writing down the pros and the cons of staying and of leaving. The second step I took was talking to a friend that was a cop at the time. The third step I took was writing a letter telling him why we left and detailed what he shouldn't do, because I got a restraining order on him. My decision-making process was similar to evaluating alternatives, contingency plans and

Decision-making test results:
After completing the ‘decision-making style test’ I found out that I am a “spontaneous/external decision maker” (Kent State University, 2015). This means, that I have a preference to make decisions quickly and based on what I feel is right (Kent State University, 2015). I often change my goals easily due to new preferences, hence why I will take risks and rarely construct a specific plan in regards to decision-making (Kent State University, 2015). The external components of my decision-making style include the preference to think after talking, thinking about decisions out loud, and consulting with others prior to making a decision (Kent

The famous Land Law also shows: the world of bankruptcy for every 100 large enterprises, 85% due to careless decision-making caused by business managers.

In addition to this criminology also focuses on the topic of crime and a range of human behaviours and relationships between various entities of society. What is considered to be an act of crime is normally defined by a person in power. Therefore the subject or object of investigation by the study of criminology includes the psychological assessment of a human being and the exploration of the dynamic between decision makers, institutions, the state and other authorities overseeing crime as their responsibility.

alternative (Boylan, 2009). Utilitarianism is holding to the views that the right actions will produce the good in someone, and it holds the theory of what it takes for the greater good. One of the worst examples happened during the first Gulf War in 1991. United Nations troops were called into action against the Iraqi war machine. They steadily overwhelmed Saddam Hussein’s forces and instead of being overthrown was kept in power for the greater good of keeping Middle Eastern peace. Deontological ethics is a theory of morality based on a “nonconsequentialist” view of people and moral decision-making (Marks, 2012).

The theory of bounded rationality is one that been a cause for discussion in economist circles around the world for many years. The theory, originally coined by Hebert Simon surrounded the limitation of humans to process the amount of information available to make a logical, economic decision and the consumer would therefore, settle for something that satisfyingly sufficient, or ‘satisfice’(Simon 1955). Furthermore, the theory expanded over time to also include mans use of heuristics to simplify cognitive effort in the decision making process (Simon and Newell 1972) and it was argued that ‘logical and economic’ decisions were never reached by humans due to emotions and

By understanding the outcomes for every option the individual will understand what provides him with the biggest layoff or the worst decision. Game theory was widely used by the U.S military in the cold war against the Soviets. The Americans used a theory referred to as deterrence theory. This theory is achieved through belief that providing a basic fear of punishment. The theory states that a significant threat of retaliation may halt an enemy’s action. And that is exactly what happened with the Soviets did. They saw the weapons and arsenal at the fingertips of the United States and decided it was better not to attack. This

The Choice Theory
Professor Nick George
The Theory that I selected was the Choice Theory according to the choice theory the individual commits the crime because he or she make a rational choice to do so by weighing the risks and benefits of committing the act. If the risk (e.g.,) (apprehension and punishment) out weight the benefits, then the person will not commit the act, and vice versa. But in a more perfect world that might be true. I think that the criminal mind does not have a rational thought process, because even if the crime has a negative outcome the criminal will still commit the crime. I think that it is more of a personal satisfaction

A deontology theorist upholds one’s duty to justify their actions when considering what is ethical. Though there is a fair amount of positive attributes, there are many flaws.

In economics and business decision-making, sunk costs are retrospective (past) costs that have already been incurred and cannot be recovered. Sunk costs are sometimes contrasted with prospective costs, which are future costs that may be incurred or changed if an action is taken. Both retrospective and prospective costs may be either fixed (that is, they are not dependent on the volume of economic activity, however measured) or variable (dependent on volume).
In traditional microeconomic theory, only prospective (future) costs are relevant to an investment decision. Traditional economics proposes that an economic actor not let sunk costs influence one's decisions, because

Shoemaker discusses that ethical egoism is easily applicable as it provides consistent and determinate moral verdicts. Basically with applicability an individual judges how each action will turn out for them. Each decision is weighted upon the consequences it will result. Shoemaker also points out that this theory could become exhausting if every decision is put through this process. Therefore he clarified that only important decisions should go through such rigorous calculations or the individual will get

This new development would bring in $150 million a year from tourism and would create several hundred new jobs. By moving forward with the development would cause 30 people to be out of work and affect the lives of 100 senior citizens.

For example a person finds $100.00 outside of a bank ATM and is faced with the decision to either walk into the bank and turn in the money for the owner to claim or keep the money for themselves. This person can make the decision to keep the money based on the fact that he is short on cash that week, it can help feed his family, and the money is going to be used to help with his financial situation. In this case the found money can be a benefit or the person can choose to turn in the money, which of the two is

She argues that patients take deliberate actions with the sole purpose of meeting therapeutic self-care demand or known needs to betaken care of. She further states that self-care demands and needs tend to vary throughout one's lifespan. However, if the demand in question is not met, the theory of self-care deficit comes in( Smith & Parker, 2015). In other words, failure to meet therapeutic needs leads to self-care deficit, hence creating the need for proper nursing.

If Donna wants to make the decision that would be in everyoneâ€™s best interest, she would make the decision using the theory of Utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is the moral theory that is based on the results of decisions to choose what would cause the most pleasure or the least amount of pain. These decisions should cause the greatest happiness to the greatest number of people. An individualâ€™s happiness is no more important that the happiness of someone else and the happiness of the group is most important. If the result of the decision causes more happiness or less pain, then it was a good moral decision (Mill, 2004). According to Scarre, Millâ€™s

The path-goal theory developed by House(1971) and developed over the next several years(e.g. House, 1999), Since that’s time there are a lot of studies created to test of the theory, argues that leaders can adjust their own behaviors to adapt to contingencies and in this way find the most suitable style for any particular situation. The theory states that the main goal of the leader is to help subordinates attain the subordinates' goals effectively, and to provide them with the necessary direction and support to achieve their own goals as well as those of the organization.

Capital structure refers to the proportion of financing from debt and from equity capital (D/E ratio). An efficient mixture of capital reduces the price of capital. Lowering the cost of capital increases net economic returns, which, ultimately, increases firm value. There are a number of theories that explain capital structure, namely, M&M, Static Trade-off Theory and the Pecking Order Theory.M&M theory assumes that the market is in a perfect capital market status as no transaction or bankruptcy costs, asymmetric information flow, firms and individuals can borrow at the same interest rate, no taxes and investment decisions are not affected by financing decision.

Three important parts of this definition are the terms relationship, mutual, and collaborators. Relationship is the connection between people. Mutual means shared in common. Collaborators cooperate or work together.

Another key aspect the theory highlights that maintaining flexibility under uncertainty has option value, and this value can account for a substantial proportion of the value of many investments (Tong & Reuer, 2007).

It can help improve decision making by bringing the subject of finance into strategic planning tools, and also by incorporating strategic realities into traditional capital budgeting models that do not explicitly account for the value of flexibility and managerial discretion (Tong & Reuer

One of the process theories is the expectancy theory. This theory suggests that people look at the possibilities on basis anticipated work or reward. They look at the possible result if they perform well, whether they receive a reward, and if so is it worth it.

It is a form of consequentialism. This good is often happiness or pleasure, though some utilitarian theories might seek to maximize other consequences. Utilitarianism is sometimes summarized as "The greatest happiness for the greatest number."

Aristotle’s Nature of Ethics can be defined as individuals with prior experience and knowledge can only make proper decisions of ethical manner as they cannot be swayed with emotion and passion. This statement is a matter of theory because Aristotle feels as if younger individuals cannot make rational decisions or moral choice because they lack the knowledge and experience to make these decisions. I believe that this theory has its truths due to the way that Aristotle feels it relates to certain situations, like someone being a judge and making rulings of matters in which they have had previously made decisions upon. He believes that this knowledge judge will make a more ethical decision

situations which acquire certain reasoning skills.However, having said that mental models are highly influential in the way we reason as they lead individuals to formulate decisions based on evidence and not alternate situations. The theory of decision making suggests that an individual can produce a more accurate decision when reasoning based on facts.In conclusion we can clearly state that mental models employed in probability judgements and jury reasoning inform us that when individuals are placed within a certain group (e.g. jurors) where they experience similar mental models, decisions are easily formulated. Therefore leading them to a more accurate and reasonable verdict. Whereas if the
