Context: Workplaces today are changing rapidly in parallel with rapid advances in technology and means of communication with teams separated in terms of space and time, that is different geographic locations and time zones, not only within countries, but also across continents. This is something that we in Torrens adapt to on a daily basis as part of a global organisation. We need to take into account not only time and space, but other elements of diversity to collaborate effectively for organisational outcomes.
Task:
This assignment is designed for you to critically reflect on key themes for this subject: individual and group decision-making processes; sources of data and analysis, including usage of data analytics for organisational decision-making, and the influence of bias in effective decision-making.
In doing so, you should consider a meaningful work challenge – a project that requires many decisions to be made- that is relevant for you- in your current, or recent workplace. [NOTE: Torrens University is a workplace and you have a special role in it.].
MGT602_Assess 3_Research Analysis 1 of 4 CHECKPOINT: Submit a draft of your outline and discuss your report proposal with your Learning Facilitator by WEEK 9.
