Problem Solving 2 I chose scenario number two (2). This scenario is one I felt I could more easily relate to and can be informative to the reader. The scenario is as follows: “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.” Problem-solving is the process of finding solutions to difficult or complex issues. It is a major management policy. If problems are successfully solved, they provide a way to a better feel of control involving a problem (Real, Carlson, & Lewis, 2011). A six-step method to problem-solving is suggested when solving problems. In this assignment, the six-step method will be used to address the problem in scenario 2. In this scenario, an employee has to make the decision of staying in a job where she can further her education or move to another job to make more money. The purpose of this paper is to present a synthesis of the ideas to be used in solving the problem in scenario 2 using the six-step method.

    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.
