There were several objectives of this exercise. The first was to try to get a consensus from three groups and decided which employees would be laid off from the Enigma Engineering Company based on specific criteria. In the interest of time we decided that each of us would act as Division managers and individually rank the employees. Khalid was appointed as leader of the group with the tie-breaker vote. Each of us would make our decision separately and then forward our results to the other members for a comparison. We believe it would have been interesting exercise if we could have actually conduct the full exercise in class separating them into three teams and comparing what they would have come with versus what we came up with. We will conduct a quick sample in the class. The next objective was to try and exert influence over the other team members by questioning their rationale for their decision. Since we completed our decision forms separately our ability to influence each other was limited. We will attempt to accomplish this objective in the classroom when we conduct the sample. We will provide the class with the same information that we had and observe how they handle the issue. It is our theory that they will be able to reach and consensus without much coercion. This is because the class members have been together for 13 months have formed an informal organization structure. It would have been interesting to see the outcome of this exercise if this had been conducted at the beginning of this program. To determine the ranking we had to analyze limited data that was subjective as opposed to objective information. The instructions were vague at best and some of the information did not have numerical values. Also there was no explanation as to how the subjective information was determined.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
