Transcript of "Decision making scenarios"

  1. 2. <ul><li>&quot;Street Kids International&quot; is a company that was started by a man who wanted to do something to help the street children in developing countries. </li></ul><ul><li>He wanted to find a way to provide employment for these children so they could earn money for themselves and their families. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>He started a courier business, delivering mail to embassies in a large city. The children used bicycles to deliver packages. </li></ul><ul><li>There was a problem. Most of the children could not read. How would they know where to deliver each package? </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>His solution was to use the flags of the embassies. He requested that each embassy include a picture of that embassy's flag. The children knew the embassies by the flags they flew and were able to deliver the correct packages. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>The children were very grateful for an opportunity to earn money to help support themselves and their families. </li></ul><ul><li>They soon realized that if they could read and write the company would be more efficient. </li></ul><ul><li>They made the decision to learn to read and write. (Note: In developing countries evening classes are sometimes held for children who have to work during the day to support themselves and their families) </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>What were the problems? </li></ul><ul><li>Why did these problems exist? </li></ul><ul><li>What risks did the man who started &quot;Street Kids International&quot; take? </li></ul><ul><li>What did he hope to achieve? </li></ul><ul><li>In what ways was his idea of the embassy flags a good one? </li></ul><ul><li>What good things came out of the project? </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>A group of children was playing near two railway tracks. </li></ul><ul><li>One track was in use, the other wasn’t. </li></ul><ul><li>Only one child was playing on the disused track while the rest were playing on the operational track. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>The train came and you were just beside the track interchange. </li></ul><ul><li>There was no way the train could be stopped but you could make it change its course to the disused track. </li></ul><ul><li>Doing that would sacrifice one child but you could save most of the other kids. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Think. Analyse. Reflect. What would you decide?
  9. 10. Give reasons why your course of action is the best one to take. List down possible consequences of your decisions.
  10. 11. <ul><li>Life is full of tough decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>Hasty decisions may not always be the right one. </li></ul><ul><li>What’s right isn’t always popular, what’s popular isn’t always right. </li></ul>
