Present the exercise using Word, single spaced, and with page numbering. You may include presentation graphics/tables/charts/pictures
as you deem appropriate. Choose any of the concepts from this course(probability /Decision Tree/Game Theory /Software Metrics /Analytic Hierarchy process) just choose One and explain how you could use the concept to make
a substantial improvement to either your management style or one of your organization’s
standard operating practices. If you are not currently employed, you may refer to a previous
work organization, or you may choose an organization from your personal life. You do not need
to be currently employed to be able to improve a personal management practice so if you are not
currently employed you may make that choice. Use the following format.
Situation/Background. 15 points. Explain either your current management practice or your
organization’s standard operating practice that you want to improve. Explain what is not going
as well as possible, and how your choice of concept will make things better. Provide a context
for the need for a change. This will likely require about a page.
Goal. 5 points. Specifically describe what aspect of either your current management style or
your organization’s standard practices needs to get better. An example of an appropriate
sentence might be “The purpose of this intervention will be to …” or something like that. This
will likely require a single paragraph.
Implementation Procedure. 20 points. Explain how you intend to introduce the change, and how
you intend to implement it. Describe any objections you may encounter and how you intend to
handle those objections. Describe how will you measure the effect of the change assuming it is
implemented; what metric(s) will you use and provide an example using notional (dummy)
numbers for illustration purposes. The improvement does not necessarily need to be in terms of
dollars; it can be in terms of improved internal procedures, investment in the future, or some
form of “customer satisfaction.” This will likely require 2-3 pages.
