Provide a 2 pages analysis while answering the following question: Individual report 2. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Report al Affiliation) Question one The report was primarily based on understanding the decision-making process executed in Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). This also looked at technologies that assist in developing decision-making process of an organization like the Decision Support System (DSS). The part that I worked on in this report was on the company description which included the company summary, .the core activities of the company, its products and services, and the management structure. Another area that I worked on was on the decision making process.
Information on the company description was retrieved mainly from the company’s website (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, 2010). This site has vast information about the company. The challenges that were experienced in the process of collecting information about the company was separating relevant information from irrelevant information. This is mainly because of the amount of information which is accessible in this site. Because of the amount of information, I experienced challenges in time management. This is because I found myself taking most of the time looking at the amount of information instead of starting the project. In the future projects, I would improve on the time management issue by developing and following strictly a personal timetable. I would also try to read severally the requirements of the project in order to ease my ability locate key points for the project. Time management would also help save time that can be useful in case of any unexpected delays.
The general information about the decision making process that mainly looked at the decision making process was retrieved from published books. Although the information on this section is straight forward from the published books, it was crucial to read a huge amount of information and write the section in my own opinion while avoiding using direct quotes (Lunenburg, 2010). This was crucial so as to relate the theoretical part of the paper and the topic being discussed. In future research that I will work on, I will gather all the information in time in order to have enough time to look at all the document. In normal cases, just like any other student, I assumed that there is plenty of time to complete the project. Even though there is enough amount of time provided by the lecturers, there is always the tendency of postponing the assignment until the last minute because of other engagements in the university. In order to make improvements, it is crucial to develop a personal time table indicating the timeliness of completing a section in the project. This will make sure that ample time is given to the project. This will also help in balancing all the other classes in my course work
