MGMT 331: Decision Making Process
 

The organization of the future is held together by information – working in such an organization will require literacy to obtain the necessary internal and external information to do our jobs”. --Peter Drucker

The student who is information literate uses information accurately and creatively (ALA Standard 3 ).

  • The student who is information literate manages information skillfully
    and effectively in a variety of contexts. That student organizes
    and integrates information from a range of sources and formats in
    order to apply it to decision making, problem solving, critical thinking,
    and creative expression (ALA).

The student [r]ecognizes that accurate and comprehensive information is the basis for intelligent decision making (ALA Indicator 2 of Standarad 1)

Core business research is about companies, industries and the economy—national and international. The life cycle of such information is a resuable resource. The cycle is not linear.
