* The determining factors affecting Habitat for Humanity’s decision to establish a greater presence in Kava is controlled by the Kava government along with its willingness to accept assistance, the willingness of organizations to help with construction as well as meeting conservation concerns, and citizens abilities along with its willingness to assist in construction. CEO Jonathan Reckford, the board of directors, and key staff members will have to be in agreement about continual need to remain in Kava. Another consideration is if there are available resources to do the construction, to run the tools to complete the construction, and to operate on a day-to-day basis. Habitat for Humanity needs to consider also if there are enough translators that speak the indigenous languages of the South Pacific tribes, Asian (Chinese primarily), African, French, and Spanish. Habitat for Humanity needs to make sure that economic interests have a way to be shipped and can be transported out. Another huge factor affecting Habitat for Humanity’s decision would be the safety of everyone involved. The medical and safety risks to staff and the community need to be addressed. The natural disasters risk to the community and staff. The last factor is to attract tourists back to Kava.
*
Not only has Kava’s government been willing to have assistance from Habitat for Humanity but also they have opened their arms, are hopeful for future endeavors due to Habitat’s willingness to be conservative, and because of Habitat for Humanity’s quick response with the Disaster Response Team.

...Decisions in Paradise Part 2 University of Phoenix Critical Thinking: Strategies in Decision Making MGT/350 August 07, 2011 Decisions in Paradise Part 2 This paper reports on a company named “Drinks in Paradise” and the focus of the research that revolves around how critical thinking is used or how it affects a business decision. Drinks in Paradise wishes to expand their company to a location in Paradise. Nik is a new employee, the company has sent him to complete a business evaluation, and then to report his findings back to upper management. Nik will need to do a cost analysis of the situation and use the six systematic steps of the decision making process together with a cost benefit analysis in order to start the operation. To make an analysis every department has special techniques or tools they use. These tools check the feasibility and workability of a plan, and any unforeseen events. To make solid, sound, logical, and error free decisions is an important step from the beginning. “Critical thinking is thinking that proceeds on the basis of careful evaluation of premises and evidence and comes to conclusions as objectively as possible through the consideration of all pertinent factors and the use of valid procedures from logic” (Callahan, 1998 Par 1). Cost benefits analysis is a tool that can be used and will assist Nik and his team in conducting a financial analysis. This technique will help decide if a plan is a good one or not. Financial...

Decision in Paradise Part 2

... Paradise scenario using the “Six Thinking Hats” approach. White Hat/ Hat #1:  “With this thinking hat, you focus on the data available. Look at the information you have, and see what you can learn from it. Look for gaps in your knowledge, and either try to fill them or take account of them. This is where you analyze past trends, and try to extrapolate from historical data” (U.K.A, 2008). When applying this step to the Decisions in Paradise Scenario and in relation to the establishment of a Walgreens, one has to draw these conclusions; Kava has the potential for cash crops such as coffee, sugar, cocoa, and spices, which can be sold at the local store to attract locals and tourists. We have also learned that the island of Kava has petroleum which therefore leads to the potential to make money in energy production and guarantees the coming and going of people on the island. What else do we know? The island of Kava is a diversified place. There are many different nationalities and spoken languages. Most of the general population is adolescents and are under the age of 15. As for climate, it can be seen as almost a paradise. Although, the island is plagued with multiple types of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc. There are also some other potentially harmful things that plague this island nation including; Avian Flu, HIV/AIDS Virus, and terrorism.

Salyer MGT/350 February 13, 2012 Mark Hudson Decisions in Paradise, Part 1 Kava is an island country in South Pacific that has been plagued with unfortunate circumstances that have brought about one disaster after another. This country is in dire need of some help and aid in the situation of getting the country cleaned up and on its way to recovery. My job is to create a plan that would help Kava recover from the disaster and bring some economic stability to the country with the help of the Walmart Corporation. Some issues that will need to be taken into consideration is that over 50% of the people are under 15 years old and many of the natural disasters threats that the area faces. The company will need make sure that the mix of language and ethnicity is also taken into consideration. Walmart is about saving people money so that they can live better and that is what Walmart is going to bring to Kava. Walmart as a company is dedicated to helping the community and would help Kava try to recover from all the disasters they have gone through. Today, Walmart International is a fast-growing part of Walmart's overall operations, with 5,366 stores and approximately 740,000 associates in 27 countries outside the continental U.S. (Walmart Corporate, 2012).

Decision in Paradise Ii

...Decision In Paradise Emmanuel Brew Riverson MGT 350 Critical Thinking: Strategies In Decision Making Kevin McPhee May 5,2012 Decisions in Paradise – Part II Most business decisions are taken by senior executives based on assessments that will determine in advance what will happen if the business takes the expected direction. Financial tools (i.e. cost benefit analysis) are truly helpful during the decision-making process; however, they should never be confused with the decision as the outcome of the decision-making process (Langdon, 2001). In “Decision in Paradise – Part 2”, Joey will utilize a decision-making technique that is suitable for this scenario as well provide a step-by-step analysis while utilizing the technique. Finally, he will discuss the decision-making model he selected and how the model selected influences his proposed solutions. Cost Benefit Analysis The decision-making technique that Joey selected for his business study at Kabo is the cost benefit analysis. The cost benefit analysis is completed in order to determine how well or poor a plan will turn out. Cost benefit analysis is also known as “running the numbers” as it relies on adding positive factors and subtracting the negative ones in order to determine a net result. The difference that is found between benefits and costs will advise if the plan is feasible. The cost benefit analysis must include all the costs, all the benefits and properly quantify them in order to get accurate analysis...

Business Research Methods, Part Three

...Business Research Methods, Part Three For Jose Cuervo to stay ahead of the game, qualitative and quantitative data must be collected to develop the new tequila line and stay ahead of the competition. Collecting quantitative data on the tequila is relatively easy, whereas collecting qualitative data, on the other hand taking a significantly larger and more meticulous effort. To collect such data a survey was conducted to determine whether or not Jose Cuervo should introduce a new tequila line specializing in the women market. A convenience method was used because the sample was made up of one hundred women who were easy to reach at various locations. A series of four questions regarding the likes and dislikes of tequila was made. From the data collected Jose has decided to analyze the data as follows. If, 65% of the individuals gave positive feedback then Jose Cuervo would accept and launch the new tequila line Reina de la Noche. According to the data the one of the highest scoring questions showed that 85% of the population surveyed likes to drink tequila. Furthermore, 95% of these individuals have confidence that they would drink tequila if it were fruity in flavor. It is also very important for Jose Cuervo when introducing a new product that the value and consumption of the current high quality tequila does not weaken. Jose Cuervo believes the high scores in these categories reinforces and confirms the hypothesis. However, there are a number of challenges...

Business Decision Making Part I

...Business Decision Making Part I Business Decision Making Part I Data sets are useful when the need to analyze and answer questions come into play. With the real estate data chosen by our team, we were able to see the need for a few answers right off the bat. With multiple variables present, a few questions that came to mind were; what is the average price of a 4 bedroom house, does square footage affect the price of a home, and even does the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms affect the price of a home? These are all great questions surrounding the data and the question we chose to answer is; does square footage directly affect the price of a home? This posed as a great question for first time home buyers and those that are already in a house. This provides great details into what size house a family may need, and what they can realistically afford. Data The variables we are working with will be the size and price of the real estate. These two variables provide the insight into what size house alters what pricing tier within the real estate market.
