I grew up with my grandparents, and my grandfather was in the military. His command was not negotiable. Certain things he was not sure, he would ask advice from my grandmother but all financial responsibility he took. It was also a different generation. The little knowledge of military background is about power, and higher authority must decide at the moment to protect your army or country. I believe it depends on the situation; if you need to make a decision base on the little knowledge that you know, you expect it that you also took into consideration possible outcomes.  When put in a new situation where you have to make an instant decision, it has to be luck in a way because your choice can come out in a positive or negative outcome. 

As far as sports, yes, it is expensive, specialize for the parents because we sign up our kids for a semester for sports to do activities. If the coach tells me the uniforms are 100 dollars plus 20 dollars on equipment, and the activity is 150 for one semester, which is only 1 hour per week, it seems price, and I might fight back that is expensive for the materials. However, if my child does it for a year, then I see as is require and necessary for his activity. Ultimately, I believe in how you communicate your issue to the parent or come out with other possible solutions to be less expensive, like donations, discounts, bake sale, and others

The company I worked for wanted to increase the number of employees in all departments. As the assistant production manager, I was supposed to give a rough estimate number of employees required in each department. This was a rigorous task for me as it involved working closely with the departmental heads to highlight the areas that needed additional workforce. I was also supposed to indicate the departments that did not require additional workforce, according to the departmental heads.

Using the Vroom-Yetton Decision Model

The Vroom-Yetton Decision Model has been used by leaders to make decisions on behalf of companies. The model suggests that decisions should base on the prevailing situation or problem. Using the model to improve the decision-making process would require an analysis of even questions. These are;

The presence of a quality requirement- in my situation, the nature of the solution to increase the number of employees in each department was critical

Sufficient information to make the decision- in my position, I should also have sought the employees’ opinions regarding the company’s decision. The employees would help me know whether they currently overloaded with work or not.

Presence of alternatives (Michele, Yolande, & Mind Tools Content Team. n.d.)- using the model, I should have assessed the presence of other options to the decision. This is because there could be cheaper alternatives that could reduce the company’s recruitment budget.

The importance of the subordinates’ acceptance to the outcome- this would require me to investigate how the subordinates would receive the news of the decision. The subordinates should also be allowed to voice their opinions.

How my subordinates would receive the decision if I made it myself- this calls for me to analyze how the aides would accept the decision if I were to make it on my own.

Whether the subordinates have a stake in the solution- this requires analyzing the importance of including the subordinates in decision making.

Presence of conflicts among assistants when reaching a solution- this is highlighting any disputes that may exist among the subordinates.
