  • Illustrate the different decision-making models that could potentially be used by the organization to address the issue.
  • Determine which decision-making model you feel would be the most appropriate for resolving the issue. Provide examples to support your response.
  • Analyze whether or not the organization utilized the most appropriate decision-making model to resolve the problem. Justify your analysis with specific examples.
  • Analyze whether or not the organization utilized the most appropriate theories and models to devise its decision. Justify your analysis with specific examples.

Working In the Firm’s Best Interest

Each year, public schools are rewarded with bigger budgets for achieving a rating of “excellent” or “recommended” and are punished for rating “ needs improvement”.These ratings are based on meeting thresholds on a broad set of measures such as attendance rates, graduation rates, standardized test scores, SAT scores, and so on. Discuss the incentives for school principals (who are the agents, in this case) under this scheme and how you might improve them.

Homework #1

No unread replies.No replies.

Don’t make this assignment more difficult than it actually is. Under “Announcement” , entitled “One Thing …”, there are two articles. For each article, summararize the article with one paragraph. The paragraphs should be 250 words, or less.

Also, please provide a a third paragraph. The third paraph should summarize how the articles will shape your “decision making” as a manager, a business ower, or an individual with dealing with a personal legal issue. The paragraph should answer, “what are you looking for in attorney”. It should answer how you will “manage” that relationship to avoid unnecessary loss of time and cost.

There is no “one” right answer for the third paragraph. However, it should make sense for what you are dealing with and looking for in an attorney. It should show that you understand what the two articles are about.

You are the “manager”. Remain professional, but poignant. You, your company, or your business are paying the cost for attorney fees. This paragraph should also be 250 words, or lesss.

One Thing ….

No unread replies.No replies.

As business professionals and future business professionals, you will read many business related books over the course of your career. For example, “Good to Great”, “80/20 Principal” and “Habit” are three of my favorites.

“ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results” is a recent New York Times Best Seller. In sum, the book describes “the value of simplifying one’s workload by focusing on the one most important task in any given project”.

Why is this significant to Business Law 308? This course covers topics that I learned over three years in law school, a bar exam, and 14+ years of legal service. Practically, I don’t believe we can do the various subjects and topics justice in a 12-week course.

However, you should leave the course being familiar with key legal terms and concepts that business professionals address frequently. The “one thing” I would like you to get out of this course is that the act of hiring and working with an attorney is a “relationship”.

Every business will need an attorney. Like most relationships that you can’t avoid, it has to be managed.

I will attach two articles that I believe summarizes “the good and the bad” with the relationship. The articles also cover areas in the relationship that will need the most attention and management.

The articles will be a homework assignment at some point during the semester. I will give you advanced notice.

Describe a conflict situation that you have experienced in which you had to use negotiation skills. Identify the type of conflict and discuss how you worked through the negotiation process. Then, evaluate both the process and the outcome of the negotiation.

Address the following questions in your assessment:

  • What worked well?
  • What would you have done differently?
  • What was the most difficult part of the negotiation process?
  • What part of the process (if any) went more smoothly than expected?

Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length and conform to APA Requirements. Include at least two scholarly references in addition to the course readings.

Grammar and punctuation are KEY!

Some notes:

Interpersonal conflict is the focus of this course. Interpersonal conflict occurs between two individuals, such as co-workers, partners, family members, and neighbors. Problems that may arise with respect to negotiation include:

  • Filtering: When the receiving party manipulates information to make it appear more favorable to his or her side.
  • Emotions: The emotional state of the receiver will affect how the messages are interpreted.
  • Information overload: When the amount of information given exceeds the individuals’ processing capacity.
  • Defensiveness: When one of the negotiating parties feels threatened, he or she may react by making sarcastic remarks or verbal attacks, or by questioning motives.
  • Culture: A negotiator uses different tactics with different cultures; for example members of an individualistic society (e.g., the United States) versus members of a collectivist society (e.g., Japan) (Dontigney, 2014).
  • Contending Strategy: Competitors or parties who feel very strongly about achieving a desired outcome will choose a contending strategy. This occurs when one party works hard to persuade the other party to accept their desired outcome, and pushes against any compromises and concessions that the other party may offer.
  • Yielding Strategy: When one party works to accommodate the other party’s needs, then the accommodating party is choosing the yielding strategy. The yielding strategy is not simply a “doormat” approach; in fact, there can be advantages to accommodating the other party, particularly when a long-term relationship is at stake.
  • Inaction: The third strategy for managing conflict is inaction. Inaction can be similar to choosing not to negotiate, or it may be a strategy used during the concession-making process. Silence and inaction toward the other party’s concession communicates disapproval.
  • Collaborative Strategy: Problem solving together with the other party, called collaborative or integrative negotiating, is a strategy that results in maximizing the outcome for both parties. Negotiating on this level requires cooperation from both parties and a clear desire to achieve the best and most synergistic outcome possible together.

Compromising Strategy: The fifth strategy for managing conflict is compromising. It is distinguished from problem solving because the parties are not necessarily working together positively. The parties may be reluctantly compromising during the concession-making process in order to continue the negotiation and achieve a relatively acceptable outcome.
