You will add to your case study journal each week by responding to the readings according to the chart below.

Module Five Introduction – Recall a   time when you have had to make an important decision – personal or   professional.  At this point, do you view that decision as a good one or   a not-so-good one?  Why?  How could you have improved the decision-making   process at that point?  How important is effective decision making in   your personal and/or professional life now?    Chapter 1 – Know   Thyself: The Power of a Decision Journal Share your first reaction about the   idea of using a decision journal to assist in making better decisions.    Remember there are no right or wrong responses; this case study is about   YOU.  Are you feeling like a decision journal may help you to become a   better decision maker?  Why or why not?   Chapter 2 – Own Your   Power: Embrace Your Decision-Making Responsibility Write about one decision   where you didn’t take responsibility.  What happened?  What was   your role? Why didn’t you take responsibility?  What would you do   differently now?


Module Six   Chapter 3 – Overcome   Obstacles: Break Down Barriers to Making Good Decisions List three decisions   that you made in the past that did not have good outcomes.  For each of   these decisions, what barriers discussed in chapter 3 affected your decision   making?   Chapter 4 – Mind Your Thoughts: Intelligently Prepare Your   Mind to Make Better Choices Take a look at the list of mental models in   Appendix C of the Kyle book.  Pick out three models you would like to   understand better.  In a brief paragraph about each, describe your   current understanding of the model and why (or how) you believe the use of   this mental model would help to improve your decision making.


Module Seven Chapter 5 – Know What You   Know: Leverage Your Circle of Competence   Describe the circle of   competence that you need to be an effective decision maker in your current   leadership role – or in the leadership role that you envision for yourself   when you complete this degree.  Describe three steps you will take to   broaden your circle of competence in your organization or department?     Chapter 6 – Just Do It: Find a Process and Use it Consistently After   reviewing the four decision processes described by Kyle in Chapter 6, choose   the one process that you think would work the best for you in making sound   decisions.  Or feel free to choose two processes to combine in a way   that makes sense for you. Explain why you think the steps in this process   will work best for you. Explain how you expect to utilize the process the   next time you have to make a decision at work.

With the advancement of globalization and the popularity of the transnational companies, cross-cultural understanding is gaining its increasing importance in the operation and management of organizations, especially hybrid companies(Seligman 1999). As is known to all, it will be easier for colleagues from different cultural contexts to get along with each other if they have a good understanding of the culture of each other’s country.
Besides, there is no denying that culture can affect the formation of leadership in a company. Nowadays, with a growing number of Asian companies emerging in the world stage, more and more people are paying attention to Asian culture and leadership as well as the culture’s impacts on leadership.
This essay will have a look at the underlying aspects of Asian culture, including social relationships, Chinese Guanxi and face, that can affect the Asian leadership. Examples of the bribery of Rio Tinto and GSK China will be given in the essay
In conclusion, the Asian culture puts great emphasis on social relationships, Chinese Guanxi and Face very much which is originated from Confucianism. The importance of social status and hierarchical structure root deeply in Asian culture. Such a culture has greatly influenced the leadership in companies. The emphasis on social relationships in the culture results in leaders’ great attention to their interpersonal relationships and communication skills. The “Face ” culture leads to centralized decision-making process in companies and the Guanxi to the illegal phenomenon of bribery. The merits in Asian culture should be integrated into the leadership while the negative aspects should be abandoned. Trainings are needed to improve leaders’ cultural awareness so as to make them more able to deal with problems resulting from cultural diversity.

Analysis on the use of CPM in business strategy management

Analysis on the use of CPM in business strategy management
The purpose of this essay is to analysis whether Competitive Profile Matrix can create powerful visual catch-point tool and be the basis of the company’s strategy or not. In modern economic market environment, if an organization wants to stand firm in the fierce market competition, it should use strategic management (Brindza, Sprouse and Thompson, 2011). Therefore, there is always a need to expand and develop any tool adopted in strategic decision-making. Companies nowadays are trying to advance their traditional multi-matrix approaches in strategy analysis (David, 2009). The conventional matrices adopted in strategic planning and analysis can provide valuable insight towards a company’s future competition position.
A CPM can create the powerful visual and to convey information related to the organization’s potential competitive advantage (Raos and Sivaramakrishna, 2008). Generally, the critical success factors in a CPM include both the external and internal issues. The internal factors evaluation matrix will summarize organizations’ major internal weaknesses and strengths while the external factors evaluation matrix can essentially be a synopsis of the organizations’ external environment’s major threats and opportunities (Amason, 2011). They can help to impact the organization. In other words, internal factor and external factor evaluation matrices are able to allow the organizations to visualize their weaknesses, strengths, threats and opportunities while CPM utilize those critical success factors to compare itself to other competitors. In analyzing the past, present and future objectives of their competitors, organizations will be able to develop more strategic and comprehensive business plans that take advantage of their weakness and to promote their own strengths (Weerakkody and Reddick, 2013). However, different people hold different idea towards this point of view. Some professors regard CPM as the basis of a company’s strategy while some others were arguing that there are still many limitations. The following literature reviews will critically analysis the use of CPM in modern business management according to the past studies and researches.
This paper has attempted to conduct literature review and critical analysis of the using of CPM in business strategy management. Strategy management is something about to gain and maintain competitive advantages. It can also be defined as “anything that an organization does especially well when compared to its rival firms.” That is to say, when an organization can do something that its rival firms cannot do well, or the organization owns something its rival firm’s desire, it will represent as the organization’s competitive advantage. Poter (2008) mentioned that getting and keeping the competitive advantages is of great importance for long term success in the business development for an organization. The pursuit of competitive advantages can lead to the organizational success or failure. In other words, strategic management practitioners and researchers alike desire to better understand the nature and the role of competitive advantages in a variety of industries.
The use of CPM analysis does help organizations making effective strategies management for their business, but it still has some disadvantages people cannot ignore. However, if the organizations can take advantage of its strength and have clear idea of its shortcomings and try to avoid the passive effect of CPM, they can still get a lot of benefits from the analysis and make their business strategy management effective and appropriate. Normally, an organization can sustain the competitive advantages for only a certain period, because its rival firms can undermine and imitate the advantages (Jeschke, 2008). It is not adequate to simply obtain the competitive advantages. Therefore, an organization must strive to achieve the sustained competitive advantages. Firstly, it can continually adapt to the changes in both internal capabilities, resources and competencies and the external events and trends. Secondly, organizations can effectively formulate, implement and evaluate strategies which can capitalize upon those factors they analyzed. Thirdly, when an organization is doing CPM analysis for managing its business strategies, it is better if it combines the analysis with SWOT Matrix, Internal Factor Evaluation, External Factor Evaluation, Strategic Position and Action Evaluation and so on. Every strategy has to be made cautiously, because every step for organization’s moving forward is essential for business development. In a word, organization should be critical while conducting the CPM analysis for their business strategy promotion.
