What Is Your Decision-Making Style?
                    I need at least a 300-word comment for this discussion
Do a search on Google or Bing on “decision-making quiz” or “decision-making questionnaire” and find quiz that you find interesting that evaluates your own decision-making style. Don’t fill out the first quiz that you find, instead look around at a few quizzes first and find one that you think seems to fit most with the material covered in the module and seems to be useful. Then fill out this quiz that you find the most useful.
Share the link and the results of the quiz with your classmates. Were the results surprising to you? Explain whether or not you found the quiz useful and also what concepts from the background materials applied to the results of the quiz (cite the specific background reading that was relevant).

Module 1 – SLP

INTRODUCTION TO DECISION MAKING
For the Session Long Project for this class, you will be applying the concepts from the background materials to your own experiences in the workplace. More specifically, you will be examining the decisions and decision-making processes of the leadership of the organization you currently work for or one that you have worked for in the past.
Also for this SLP I need it done on Con Rail. What ever story you could come up with, I’ll be find with it. 
For this first SLP assignment, think about some major and minor decisions made by your managers that you were involved with or impacted by. Review the background material concepts, and think carefully about how you have personally observed some of these concepts. Then write a 2- to 3-page paper addressing the following issues:
1. Give some specific examples of strategic and operational decisions that you have observed in your workplace. Give at least one example of each type of decision, and explain why you think this decision falls into this category with references to the background materials.
2. Give some specific examples of both programmed and non-programmed decisions that you have observed. Give at least one example of each type of decision, and explain why you think this decision falls into this category with references to the background materials.
3. Discuss the specific decision-making style of a supervisor you have worked closely with, and discuss whether this supervisor’s style is rational or intuitive. Give specific examples to explain your reasoning as to why you think this supervisor is rational or intuitive.
SLP Assignment Expectations

Required Material
The following interactive tutorial will give you a good introduction to the topic of the class:
Decision making. (2014). Pearson Learning Solutions. New York, NY.
After you’ve reviewed the tutorial, dig into the main concepts of the module with the following two readings. Pay close attention to concepts such as 1) programmed versus non-programmed decisions, 2) strategic versus operational decisions, and 3) rational versus intuitive decision-making:
For a good overview of the concepts of this module, take a look at the following reading:
Moshal, B. S. (2009). Chapter 7: Decision making in an organization. Principles of Management. New Delhi: Global Professional publishing Ltd. [eBook Business Collection. Note – you don’t have to read the whole chapter, just the first half up to the section “Decision Making Environment”. Also, do not copy the entire reference into the eBook search engine. Instead just copy the title of the book, e.g. “Principles of Management”]
For a more detailed discussion about rational versus intuitive decision-making, see the following chapter. The first few pages are especially important:

Module 1 – Case
Assignment Overview
Like many airlines around the world, leading Australian airline Qantas is facing very difficult times in spite of having a 65% market share in its home market of Australia. Due to rising fuel costs and a slow world economy, Qantas has recently been losing money and their CEO Alan Joyce has some tough choices to make. 
One difficult decision for Joyce is whether or not to sell Qantas’ frequent flyer program. It may seem odd for an airline to sell its frequent flyer program, but Qantas’ program is much more than just an airline reward program. Members of this program can gain points not only by flying on Qantas but also through other means such as shopping at one of Qantas’ corporate partners or using one of their credit cards. Points can be redeemed not only with free flights, but also with products from numerous retailers. Over 10 million Australians belong to this rewards program, almost half of the population.
The frequent flyer program is Qantas’ most valuable asset and a sale of this program would help Qantas get out of its current financial troubles. However, selling the program would also mean allowing another company to have access to Qantas most loyal customers including their business class and first class customers. In the long-run, there is potential the sale could backfire and would not be wise.
Do some research on CEO Joyce’s current choice of whether or not to sell their frequent flyer program, and also thoroughly review the background materials on intuitive versus rational decision-making including Moshal (2009) and Kourdi (2011). Your assignment will be to apply the background materials concepts to Joyce’s current big decision.
Some specific articles on Qantas to get you started:
Ross, K. (2014, Aug 27). Qantas CEO faces tough choices. Wall Street Journal [Proquest]
Ironside, R. (2014, Aug 15). Qantas warned to ground plans to sell frequent flyer program. The Gold Coast Bulletin [Proquest]
Gilder, P. (2014, Mar 29). Loyalty future cloudy. The Gold Coast Bulletin [Proquest]
Australia: Qantas frequent flyer hits 10 million member mark. (2014). MENA Report [Proquest]
Case Assignment
Once you have finished reading about Qantas and reviewing the background materials including Moshal (2009) and Kourdi (2003), write a 4- to 5-page paper addressing the following questions:
1. Is the decision whether or not to sell Qantas’ frequent flyer program a strategic or operational decision? Is it a programmed or non-programmed decision? Explain your answer using references to Moshal (2009) or Kourdi (2003).
2. Suppose Alan Joyce decides to take a rational approach to the decision whether or not to sell the frequent flyer program. List a step-by-step approach you would recommend, and include specifics regarding what kind of information or choices should be considered at each step. Do not just list the steps, give detail at each step and use material both from your research on Qantas and from Moshal (2009) or Kourdi (2003) to come up with these steps.
3. Joyce has been the CEO of Qantas for six years and is an experienced airline executive. Given his experience, do you recommend Joyce use a rational or intuitive approach to this decision? If there is a new CEO who comes from another industry and does not have this airline experience, would you recommend they use a rational or intuitive approach? Explain your reasoning, and make references to Moshal (2009) or Kourdi (2003) as appropriate.
