In week four we examined biases that occur in making decisions as individuals and the effect they can have upon the process. In week five, we focused on individuals making decisions within an organization and in week six group decision making within the organization.
The purpose of this assignment is to have the student demonstrate how individuals and groups can have differing ways of making decisions and when each should be used in business to its best effect.
Review “How to Analyze a Case Study”.
Introduction paragraph in which the decision process is described and its significance in business.

In writing a case study, the writing is in the third person. What this means is that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (second person writing).
In writing this assignment, students are asked to support the reasoning using in-text citations and a reference list. A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. View the sample APA paper under Week 1 content.
In writing this assignment, students are expected to paraphrase and not use direct quotes.
