ContextChanges on Business Projects
Thecomplexity of business related challenges have led project managersto appreciate such problems hence their aspiration to seek solutionsat a given context and time. In this regard, context is bound toinfluence decision-making, data capture and its analysis, planningand design, processes and possible solutions. Besides, context alsoundergoes certain changes hence the need to always adopt consideredand evaluated mechanisms to cope with the vicissitudes. As well,there ought to be a balance between simplicity of solution and purecorrectness, considering that thinking of every small detail canobscure options. The balancing of these is the art of the technology.Also, the tools engaged in solving problems are also evolving fasterthan before. For instance, the artificial intelligence and machinelearning techniques have become more common, and their uses haveoccasioned the automation of some business process, changing thestatistics that needs to be gathered. Given this, context needs to beincluded in any analytical business model that is built and whichaims at invigorating the project course and objectives. This paper,therefore, is premised on the need to identify the impacts thechanges might have on chosen business developments. The projectmanagers will then be in a position to employ suitable and holisticapproaches in their attempt to execute their duties satisfactorily.Indeed, the harnessing of technology in the pursuit of an appropriatesolution of various contextual problems is indispensable.
Hornstein(2015) asserts that decision-making, being an integral component ofany sound business project, interplays with the availed and necessarytools that can aid in planning and management of given undertakingswith the concerned personnel having the liberty to choose what theywant and how they need to use the tools. In this esteem, interest isput on big multinationals whose majority have adopted enterpriseresource planning software which has seen a revolutionized proceduretowards the solving of particular problems. The following result hashad an effect that meets, in real quick time, the needs andexpectations of prospective consumers, and solving any relatedefficiency issues. On the other hand, if a holdup occurs, themanagement are required to sit and make a decision instead (Gemino,Reich & Sauer, 2015). The use of enterprise resource planning toenhance their service to consumers is the kind of application I wouldrecommend for the small business like the food joint that I have beenconsidering. The practice ensured that there is speed order deliveryand based on recorded service times. Outlet administration can makedecisions to improve service delivery, and therefore catering for thetechnical changes of the organization. Structurally, theimplementation of collaboration tools will help in ensuring thatstandards are maintained irrespective of the location of a branch.The decision support systems are certainly destined to push the humaninput to the periphery in as a much as the matters they are designedto help in are concerned, thus posing a social challenge to theorganization. Training and retraining on the usage of the supportsystems will contribute to an account for the social changes thatmight have an impact on the project. The involvement of the users inthe modification processes remains a sure way to which the firms mayadopt to help mitigate any risks associated with the coming changes(Gemino, Reich & Sauer, 2015).
Inconclusion, it would be indisputable to claim that the two conceptsof problem solving and decision-making are independent to some peopleor firms until the technology is introduced. The action of presentingcertain tools necessitates the exhibition of a close relationshipbetween problem solving and decision-making. The mixture oftechnological expertise and decision-making is a crucial necessitythat should be embraced by the project managers who intend to have anextensive of the market.
