Question description

Each Question must be answered in 250 words each. References in APA format .


1. Describe the major factors related to employee selection. Be sure to include factors of job analysis, responsibilities, knowledge, skills, and abilities(KSAs), job contexts and organizational culture.  How many of these factors are contingent upon the individual vs. the organization itself?  

2. Discuss you career goals for the future and how I/O psychology could be applicable to help you succeed and grow as an individual. What unique opportunities does the field of I/O psychology present in the workplace for you personally? Is there an area of I/O that you believe will be more applicable than another? Why or why not?


3. An individual may be extrinsically or intrinsically motivated. Theories differ in their descriptions of motivation, as do the the factors that facilitate and inhibit motivation in various work settings. Which motivation theory would you use to describe the challenges with alternative work arrangements (e.g., flex-time, compressed work week, and telecommuting) as discussed in the text? Do you believe the practice of providing alternative work arrangements will continue?  Why or why not?  


4. The decision-making process is important at every level of an organization.  Regardless of position, workers are faced with making daily decisions. Apply the six-step rational decision-making model, within Chapter 8 of your course text, to one of the following situations: 

a. You are a product officer for a high-tech company.  You have two new products to market, but only have funding for one.  How will you determine which product to introduce?

b. A large advertising agency is working with a client who wants to gain market shares from its competitors by marketing to young professionals.  The agency needs to decide whether to spend all of the marketing funds on a single form of media (internet, television, or radio) or to spread it across all three.  What decision would you make?  Why?

c. You are the corporate acquisition officer for a large oil company that has an interest in acquiring an additional small to medium-sized renewable energy company (solar, wind, etc.) in order to diversify your capabilities.  What type of company should your organization acquire?  Why?
