Administrators Solving the Problems of Practice Decision-Making Concepts, Cases, and Consequences

Heftet / 2007 / Engelsk
Tested in hundreds of classrooms, this text is a student favorite that brings eight classical models of decision making to life, creating useful tools in developing strategies to solve real-life problems.The frameworks include; classical, administrative, incremental, mixes scanning, political, and garbage can models as well as two models of shared decision making. After illustrating the use of these decision-making models to analyze and develop solution strategies, students have the opportunity to explore about fifty actual cases to build their own analyses and solution strategies.New, contemporary cases have been added to this edition throughout the text as well as a final chapter that encourages cooperative learning by incorporating a comprehensive case study to be handled as a group project.
