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.
Your well-crafted presentation, must include 4-7 slides. Please include six references, at least four being scholarly/peer-reviewed discovered through the CSU-Global library.
