To frame the context for this assignment, consider the following questions: Leadership is hard; why? Perhaps the culprit is the tangential difference (disconnect?) between the intellectual, emotional, and inspirational decision relative to the problem. How do effective leaders reconcile the art and the science of decision making with the possibility of unintended consequence?
Find a case study on a business, social, or psychological "problem" in which a decision yielded an unintended consequence. In 1,250-1,500 words, analyze the unintended consequence(s) of that decision. Describe the process of decision making that was used in this instance and why that process led to the decision that was made. Despite the unintended consequence(s), were the decisions ethical at the time they were made?
Consider the following areas of concentration for effective decision making:

  1. Barriers.
  2. Cost of indecisiveness.
  3. Collaboration: strength and/or weaknesses.
  4. Unintended consequence: Inherited feature in the decision-making process.
  5. Recommendations or reconciliations to avoid unintended consequences.
