Group decision making

Below are three
different scenarios. For each scenario, explain which group decision-making
technique you would choose out of brainstorming, nominal group, or Delphi.
Justify your answer with references from the required background materials.
Your paper should be 4-5 pages in length: The company you work for is in
crisis. Several new competitors have been rapidly growing and taking away your
customers. Your company’s sales are steadily dropping. You and the rest of the
top management team know that creative new strategies are needed in order to
keep up with the new competitors. Nobody is sure what needs to be done, but it
is clear something drastic and original needs to happen in order to keep the
company afloat. The top management team members are all extroverts who are not
afraid to speak up at meetings, but they are often prone to conventional
thinking. Which group decision-making technique do you recommend? Explain your
reasoning, using the background readings to support your answer. Your company
is facing cost overruns and needs solutions on how best to cut costs. The top
management team includes both introverts and extroverts, with the extroverts
usually dominating the conversation at meetings. Furthermore, meetings with
this group often go off the agenda and drift into tangential subjects. A quick
decision needs be made with input from all members of the team. Which group
decision-making technique do you recommend? Explain your reasoning, using the
background readings to support your answer. Your company needs to purchase a
new software system as the old one is out of date. Your team consists of IT
managers from all of the company’s overseas divisions. These managers are
highly skilled and very knowledgeable about the different software options, but
it is difficult to arrange a meeting with them due to the time differences and
their very busy schedules. The decision is not urgent, but you need to make a
decision within the next three months. Which group decision-making technique do
you recommend? Explain your reasoning, using the background readings to support
your answer. Conclude your paper with a discussion about which of the three
group decision-making processes (nominal group, brainstorming, or Delphi) is
the most useful to you, considering the types of decision situations in which
you are typically involved. Explain your reasoning, and use references from the
background materials to support your answer.

Also include introduction that chronologically describes what topics will be discussed and conclusion paragraph as well as descriptive sub-titles for each question/section.
