Ethics Ethics in Action We as people make various decisions on a day to day basis. Studies have shown that some people are much poorer at decision making than they think. An understanding of what decision making involves will help produce better decisions. Decision making is the study of identifying and choosing alternatives based on the values and preferences of the decision maker. Making a decision implies that there are alternative choices to be considered. People should choose the one alternative that has the highest probability of success or effectiveness and the one that best fits with their goals, desires, lifestyle, values, and so forth. There are several basic kinds of decisions. Decisions whether, decisions which, and contingent decisions are just to name a few. Decisions whether is the yes/no, either/or decision that must be made before we proceed with the selection of an alternative.

What students are saying

    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.
