DECISION MAKING EXERCISE – USAMA NADEEM (KBAM)
In one of the KBAM sessions, we had to play the role of a consultancy to advise the government. The situation was like, the elections were very near and the government wanted to become popular and it also wanted to implement a strategy to reduce global warming. Our task was to help the government to take the right decisions to create awareness among people, reduce global warming through their actions and also increase their popularity for the incoming elections. A wrong decision could also affect all of these factors. It was a pretty unique exercise since we had to take decisions according to our knowledge and some given data and the consequences were very unpredictable. Although, we thought that we were not doing a great job as a group but in the end we got to know that the other groups were struggling as well.
It was a very good exercise since we learned a lot about decision making and also about different techniques and strategies that are being practiced throughout the world for the reduction of global warming and we also got to know that to what extent one's decisions can put an impact on the other's position like in this case was the government.
