Assignment needed by sunday @ 4pm


When faced with a problem, what do you do to solve it? This  assignment asks you to apply a six-step to problem solving process to a  specific problem scenario. You will write a paper that presents a  synthesis of your ideas about solving the problem using this systematic  approach. As Voltaire said, “No problem can withstand the assault of  sustained thinking.”

Choose one (1) of the problem scenarios as a topic choice for  your paper (Note: Your professor must approve your topic choice before  you begin work on the assignment.)

Scenario 1: You have worked at your company for  eleven (11) years. You have returned to college to earn a Bachelor’s  degree in order to increase your chances for a promotion. You are nearly  finished with your degree, when a supervisor’s position in a competing  company becomes available in another state. The start date is in two (2)  weeks, during your final exam period for your courses. The position  offers a $15,000 per year salary increase, a car allowance, and  relocation expenses. Your former supervisor works for the company and is  recommending you for the position based on your outstanding job  performance; if you want the job, it’s yours. All of the other  supervisors at this level in the company have Master’s degrees, so you  know that you would be expected to earn your Bachelor’s degree and  continue on to a Master’s degree. Your present company offers tuition  reimbursement, but the new company does not.

Scenario 2: Your child comes home from school  with an assignment sheet for a school project. He / she is very excited  about the project and begins work immediately, doing research on the  Internet and gathering materials. You read over the assignment sheet and  notice that your child is not including all of the required items in  the project, and you have some ideas for how to improve the quality of  the presentation. You recently read an article in a parenting magazine  about the importance of a child developing responsibility for his/ her  own learning. You recall the many ways in which your parents took over  your school projects. You, on the other hand, want to encourage your  child’s confidence in his / her ability to complete a project  independently. The next day, you are at the grocery store when you see a  parent of a student in your child’s class. That parent has spent over  $30 in supplies for the science project and is taking a day off of work  to put the pieces of the project together.

Scenario 3: You have two jobs, one during the  week from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and one on Saturday from 3:00 pm to 11:00  pm. You are taking two classes, one that meets from 6:00 to 10:00 pm,  and one class online. You have two kids, one who plays soccer, and one  who is in band. You have two elderly parents who no longer drive. You  have two siblings, one who lives two (2) miles away, and one who lives  in another state. You have two (2) papers due in your classes the same  week that one (1) of your children has a soccer tournament, and the  other child has a band concert. You are coaching the soccer team, and  you are in charge of fundraising for the band. You have a goal to  complete your degree in two (2) years. Your doctor tells you that your  blood pressure, your cholesterol, and your weight are too high and  recommends several medications that cost you nearly $200 per month after  your insurance co-pay.

Scenario 4: You are a sales representative for a  company that encourages staff to log time in the field and away from  the office. You are expected to begin and end your day at the office.  You notice that each day when you arrive and return another co-worker is  already there, and you wonder whether this person spends most of his /  her time at the office. At your weekly sales meeting, you are informed  of your co-workers’ outstanding sales performance. You suspect that this  co-worker is spending more time flattering the boss instead of working  leads in the field, and as a result is getting the best client  referrals. Your own sales numbers have steadily decreased since this  other sales representative was hired.

Scenario 5: Professor’s Choice – problem scenario presented by your professor.

Scenario 6: Student’s Choice – Problem scenario presented by you.

  4. Evaluate the options for solving the problem. 
  5. Decide on the best option for solving the problem.
