Create a Microsoft® Word document.
Research processes for decision-making when purchasing new computers. Use an Internet search engine.
Hint: Use search words “Decision-making process for computer purchase,” “Consumer buying decision process,” or similar words.
Research various decision-making process options and the advantages and disadvantages of each. AT LEAST TWO such decision-making processes must be described, and they must be formally documented in a reference. Also, the advantages and disadvantages of each of these processes must be described.
Note that computer selection is NOT the focus of the paper but, instead, the focus is on the selection process.
Select a decision-making process, or design your own process using your research as a guide.
Develop a 1050-word summary describing your chosen process to decide between multiple computer purchase options.
Consider the order of your decision process steps, who is involved in each step, and the contribution of each step toward a quality decision. In the summary include the following: •An MS Word table listing each decision process you considered ◦Add to the table the URL/Internet address for each decision process you considered. •An MS Word bulleted list of the steps in your chosen decision making process ◦MS Word bold, underline, and add italics to the name of your chosen decision process. ◦MS Word highlight the name of your chosen decision process.
Compose a one paragraph recommendation of your chosen computer purchase decision process for the work environment based on your research. This is in addition to the summary.
