The three decisions I have made in the past 6 months are as followed:
1. Going back to college, to earn a degree was my non-programmed decision. Weighing the pros and cons of going back to school, along with my work schedule, became the reason I was using the garbage can model, to make my decision.
2. Another non-programmed decision I made was buying a mattress. I never knew how many type of mattresses there were, which caused me to do research and visit multiple stores. I used the garbage can model for this decision / purchase.
3. A programmed decision I have made, was training a new hire on my team. I have trained many new hires in the past, therefore I have used the training module multiple times. I have also designated trainers on my team for specific areas. This was completed by using the bounded rationality model. I confirm I use “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” It has worked, I feel using this method will be able to train all the new hires.
