Assignment 2: Problem Solving

When
faced with a problem, what do you do to solve it? This assignment asks
you to apply a six-step to problem solving process to a specific problem
scenario. You will write a paper that presents a synthesis of your
ideas about solving the problem using this systematic approach. As
Voltaire said, “No problem can withstand the assault of sustained
thinking.”

Choose
one (1) of the problem scenarios as a topic choice for your paper
(Note: Your professor must approve your topic choice before you begin
work on the assignment. See below the chosen topic:

Scenario
1: You have worked at your company for eleven (11) years. You have
returned to college to earn a Bachelor’s degree in order to increase
your chances for a promotion. You are nearly finished with your degree,
when a supervisor’s position in a competing company becomes available in
another state. The start date is in two (2) weeks, during your final
exam period for your courses. The position offers a $15,000 per year
salary increase, a car allowance, and relocation expenses. Your former
supervisor works for the company and is recommending you for the
position based on your outstanding job performance; if you want the job,
it’s yours. All of the other supervisors at this level in the company
have Master’s degrees, so you know that you would be expected to earn
your Bachelor’s degree and continue on to a Master’s degree. Your
present company offers tuition reimbursement, but the new company does
not.
