This is something that we in Torrens adapt to on a daily basis as part of a global organisation. We need to take into account not only time and space, but other elements of diversity to collaborate effectively for organisational outcomes. Task: This assignment is designed for you to critically reflect on key themes for this subject: individual and group decision-making processes; sources of data and analysis, including usage of data analytics for organisational decision-making, and the influence of bias in effective decision-making. In doing so, you should consider a meaningful work challenge – a project that requires many decisions to be made- that is relevant for you- in your current, or recent workplace. [NOTE: Torrens University is a workplace and you have a special role in it.].

The sources of data, and the use of data analytics to identify trends/ patterns that form the evidence for decision-making; 2. Show visualisation of the decision-making process, and analytics to support the decisionmaking; 3.
