Assume you are a manager in a large Middle East manufacturing organization. You have been asked to consider outsourcing a division of the organization to another country.
Describe the steps you would take in evaluating this decision.
Explore whether or not you would use prescriptive or descriptive decision-making and explain your reasoning.
Evaluate the critical thinking skills you believe would be necessary to make this decision.
You must demonstrate your ability to describe the steps you would take in the decision-making process rather than merely providing an answer to this scenario. Your paper should be well-crafted, demonstrate careful development of thought, and exhibit critical thinking skill as appropriate to graduate level academic writing. Further, providing a narrative is not enough. You must tie in the concepts gained in the course and integrate those concepts throughout the main body of your discussion.
Your paper should be 4-6 pages long, double-spaced, and formatted according to Saudi Electronic University’s academic writing standards and APA style guidelines. Use at least three peer-reviewed scholarly sources and information from your module to support your decision.
