3 Introduction Rapid technological change, turbulence, and considerable uncertainty in most organizations’ micro- and macro-environments create increasingly challenging working conditions for decision- makers.

It can be your finances that dictate how you are living your life and the choices you make. For example, typical Asian families would love to have a son or daughter become a doctor, lawyer or engineer. It’s one of those stereotypes that actually have truth in them.

    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.
