Short Paper Decision Making Styles

6-1 Short Paper: Decision-Making Styles

To address this week’s topic of decision making in sport organizations, choose a common problem or issue that sport organizations have faced. It can be a problem you are aware of from a team that you are a fan of, something you heard about in the news, or something you read about in this course. Just make sure it is a fairly common issue that at least two sport organizations have faced. From there, compose a short paper that addresses the following critical elements:

  • Identify at least two organizations that have dealt with the problem or issue you selected.
  • Explain the nature of the issue and describe the decision-making style used by each organization.
  • Evaluate the approach of each organization.
  • Explain which organization had the best results and why.
