SWOT is quite often accessed to deal with all kinds circumstances. During writing the assignment, I read many researches about SWOT. It is widely used in business management, strategies making, even education analysis. Inevitably, all decisions are almost related to internal and external factors. Being a manager, it is absolutely responsible for leading the colleagues and achieving common goal. However, critical analysis the overall environment is never an easy task. I believe that SWOT is not only a completed report for illustrating the status. Based on solid realization, the managers will have chance to create better competence for the businesses. Business owners should always notice the dynamic changes in daily lives, and link the opportunities with the companies running. Even though some risk is hard to fully prevent in advance, some preparation is definitely helpful to overcome the tough situation.

Basically, bias is hard to eliminate in decision processes. Even though great amount of methods is trying to achieve unbiased decision, bias still exists in each decision. I believe that bias is closely relating to humanity. Every individual is trying to acquire some benefits for his/ her own sake. Through decision process, the bias will have chances to be minimized at the end. The teammates will discuss the issue and vote for the final decision openly. Thus, creating efficient communication platform is essential in all the decision processes. Inevitably, some arguments could happen in this kind of process. However, it should be seen a part of discussion. Through exchanging different opinions, some people might be persuaded by others. Associating with some decision techniques, everyone will be glad to see the happy ending and anticipate the best results after executing their choices.

We put a lot of effort to analyze AHP on group meeting today. Firstly, we try to make the agreement among the options which we are brainstorming. Some analysis is also discussed for benefiting WaveRiders. Just what I said, I like to cooperate with others from different background, because they always bring various ideas to stimulate my thought. Although some disagreement might be happened at discussion, we’re still trying to overcome all of them. One colleague might think totally different priorities with others in deciding the weights of AHP, but we still benefit from each other through communication. The adjustment might be made afterwards for unanimous result. In my opinion, AHP is just a technique to help to make the decision, but the consensus still needs the cooperation among the teammates. I’m forward to seeing the next meeting and realizing more decision process from my partners.

It’s our first meeting for PDM and inspired me a lot. I always enjoy cooperating with different teammates from various backgrounds and benefiting from them. On the weekend, I spent much time on studying linear algebra for realizing AHP. However, we understood more about this topic through discussion this morning. Firstly, we discussed the decision process to proceed our presentation. We chose the decision method and then separated into different topic for further studying. My teammate shared a lot of information and helped us to get into detail of our choices. However, I didn’t prepare very well for this discussion and provide less information in this meeting. Yet, based on this discussion, all of us were much familiar with our each technique for helping analysis. Certainly, we also talk about the content which we would like to present. That’s included what kind of material we should present and how we explain the ideas for accomplish this task on Friday. Fortunately, it’s another pleasure experience to work with these partners. Hopefully, we’ll smoothly and sufficiently perform our view at the end.

In this week, we were introduced several methods to make decisions. I’m studying SMART and AHP on the weekend. Unavoidably, these two methods access with some math techniques especially AHP. I spent some time on remembering eigenvectors. Although it is not easy to access these skills into the problems, the most difficult thing is how to make the consensus within the group. Everyone is supposed considering in various aspects, so it is not easy making agreements on these items.
Honestly, the task is much more difficult than my original thought. At the first beginning, I thought that we just make several decisions and help the company to be competitive. After two days lectures, there are great amount of ideas emerging in my mind. In other words, many ideas might have potential risk to induce biased decisions. Even though group work seems easily making unbiased agreement, it still has high opportunities that we missed some essential clues or information in decision making process. We are going to discuss the presentation in the coming week. Hopefully, we can achieve the consensus with minimum biased thought.
