One theme of this class has been decision making in group settings, and the implications of context and interaction for decision making effectiveness. This exercise gives you a chance to practice applying these concepts in a case study context, via an analysis of decisions made by actors in a realistic setting. Specifically, you were shown a video presentation which traced the efforts of an information technology manager (David Carlson) as he attempted to negotiate the implementation of a new management information system for the (fictional) conglomerate Rosewell, Inc. You are now asked to produce a short write-up analyzing several aspects of the decision making process. This write-up is to be submitted electronically through the Canvas Quiz system, and is due at the beginning of class on Wednesday, February 20.
