The decision-making process has six stages that are; identifying and diagnosing the problem, generating alternative solutions to the problem, evaluating each alternatives solution, and making a decision on choosing a solution, then implementing that decision, and then evaluate the decision. (Thomas S. Bateman, 2011) My problem that I needed to figure out was choosing to go back to school and what school to attend. During this process, I did use some the steps in the decision-making process. Deciding to go back to school was something that I had been thinking about for a couple months, but I was not sure what I wanted to go back to school for or what school I wanted to attend. The parts of the decision-making process in which I used was, identifying and diagnosing the problem. The problem in which I identified was that I wanted to go back to school but was not sure what for or where. I then generated solutions to this problem, which were to go to school for accounting or business management. I then choose accounting because it was something that I was truly interested in doing. Then came picking the school in which I wanted to attend. I had a couple chooses either to go to a local school or to do a school that I could do classes online. Classes online were the best option because it fit with my schedule the best. Then all I needed to do was contact the school I choose which University of Pheonix was the top choose. This part was pretty easy to do from there in being able to implement and evaluate my decision. My decision where somewhat similar to the ones in the decision-making process but they were a bit shorter as I skipped a few of the steps. I was able to identify and diagnosis my problem; and then I was able to come up with alternative solutions. I then made the choice that I skipped evaluation the alternatives. I then was able to implement the decision, and I have recently been able to evaluate the decision. If I had used all the six-step...
