This task focuses on the conceptual modelling of decision-making and requires students to undertake A PROCESS of problem definition, analysis of alternatives, evaluative criteria, option selection, and implementation.
The intention is not only to develop students’ conceptual and analytical skills, but also to encourage them to actively reflect on individual and group processes in terms of methods, styles, processes etc.
Having selected a model, concept or focus from literature relevant to decision-making, students should critically evaluate the ideas and issues involved.
Students may relate this exercise to their experience during the simulation, some other experience as a student, while in the work place, or observations in other circumstances.
Where relevant, students may develop their own conceptual model which illustrates and integrates the more important aspects of their ideas, for example the influence of group dynamics or gender upon decision-making.
Where the assignment involves reflection students may use the first person.
This work should be presented in the form of an individual written submission of no more than 1,500 words.
