In an earlier version of the Devettere text, when describing Prudence and Formal Reasoning, the author wrote that “ Understanding prudence as a natural decision-making process requiring virtue and practical expertise does not do away with all formal reasoning in ethical decision making. Prudence is not a science or geometry, nor is it calculating the advantages and disadvantages of as many options as possible, but if often benefits from some formal reasoning. Usually this formal reasoning occurs after the decision maker has identified a
In the current edition, on page 57 of Devettere, the author cites Kahneman describing Prudence and Reasoning, where he acknowledges that many points in his approach to decision-making agree with those of Gary Klein’s recognition-primed decision model whereby a person with expertise first quickly sees a possible good choice (System 1, in Kahneman’s language) and then mentally plays it out to see if it will work.
Devettere notes that the work of Kahneman and Klein bears an almost uncanny resemblance to the prudential decision making in virtue ethics of Aristotle and Aquinas. Develop an example from another field (ex. medicine, nursing, public health, etc.), describing the entwined processes of Prudence and Formal Reasoning.
esting on a solid foundation of statistics and methodology. My most relevant academic experience in research has been assisting Professor XXXX in writing a report on XXXX’s core competence. This experience has helped me to better understand that research is what means most to me in my professional life. Writing my master’s thesis was also a most important learning experience preparing me for doctoral study. The thesis investigated factors influencing founder-CEO replacements in venture companies and in Korean entrepreneurial firms. Drawing on three different perspectives, namely the organizational life cycle, founder-CEO characteristics, and founder-CEO’s power, I developed a conceptual framework and collected data from DART, the electronic disclosure system of the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS); the Company Data XXXX, and KINDS, the database of the Korea Press Foundation. This was the first study of this kind to be conducted in Korea, since it dealt with event-history analysis performed using STATA. This study is now under second review at the Korean Management Review and I am presenting an updated English version at the 5th Asia Academy of Management (AAoM) this December. I profoundly enjoyed all phases of the research process, especially developing hypothesis, the collection of data, and running statistical analyses-as well as drawing conclusions. I am especially enamored with the discussion of critical issues in management with professors and colleagues. My thesis resulted in a study now under second review at the Korean Management Review, indisputably the top management journal in Korea, and I am presenting an updated English version at the 5th Asia Academy of Management (AAoM) meeting this December. I am very pleased that my academic research has been appreciated by renowned researchers in the field. I look forward to learning a great deal more about corporate governance in the Ph.D. program at the XXXX School of Business, especially topics related to CEOs and top management teams. Building on my previous research, I want to continue to study the consequences of founder-CEO replacement, and how entrenched CEOs influence a firm’s performance. I am interested in the management of innovation and technology and would like to investigate how different technology acquisition strategies, including networks, lead to innovation and, in turn, to competitive advantage in the high-tech industry. I am also fascinated by the knowledge management strategy of multinational corporations, the field of expertise of my thesis advisor Professor XXXX. The first academic research I engaged in was a project commissioned by the XXXX Bank. As a Senior at XXXX University, Professor XXXX asked me to assist him with his investigation of the reasons behind a recent surge of Korean patents in the US. My responsibility was to write a case study on the Korean semiconductor industry, which played a central role in increased patents. I wrote a qualitative case in English along with four other graduate students and learned invaluable teamwork skills. This study was published in 2003 as a research report ‘What is Behind the Surge in Korean Patenting?’ by the XXXX Bank. I also assisted Professor XXXX with his study of XXXX’s core competence from multiple perspectives. Through collaboration with the XXXX Economic Research Institute (XERI), I was responsible for conducting literature reviews on various topics including but not limited to core competence, synergy, corporate governance, diversification, and organizational learning and I presented my findings at weekly meetings. The result of this research XXXX Way: The Great Transformation of XXXX since the 1990s’ was published as a research report in 2004.>GET ANSWER
