Module 1: Discussion Forum

Option #1: Outsourcing a Division

Assume you are a strategic leader in a large international manufacturing organization. The organization has experienced a significant loss in revenue over the last two years; now you must consider outsourcing a division to another country in order to reduce expenditures and sustain the company for years to come. Given that your role as a strategic leader is to focus on long-term planning, you must ensure that your decision making is effective and will meet the overall organizational goal of sustainment. Thus, address the following:

  • Describe the steps you would take in evaluating the decisions to be made in this situation.
  • Explore whether or not you would use prescriptive or descriptive decision making.
  • Explain your reasoning for the type of decision making you selected.
  • Evaluate the critical thinking skills you think are necessary to make this decision.

The focus of this assignment is on the steps that you would take as a leader while going through the decision-making process, rather than the actual decision that you would make.
