Decision Making and Problem Solving. A Resource Manual for Business Educators.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.
This manual contains materials that business teachers can use to teach their students decision-making and problem-solving skills. Each of the five sections can be used individually or in sequence. The following topics are covered: decision making; approaches to problem solving; everyday life problem solving; creative problem solving; and business problem solving. Most sections contain handout material delineating recommended processes, model exercises, techniques useful to each process, and ideas for practicing the techniques. A prefactory section called "Notes to the Teacher" discusses learning objectives, sources of decisions to make or problems to solve, and keys to success. A rationale for teaching decision making and problem solving is also provided, and a 25-item bibliography is included. (KC)
