Review the Periods 7 and 8 Decisions – Team Scoring Guide to see how your instructor will evaluate your work. Please note: WRITER You must provide rationales for the decisions your team made. You do not need to provide references, but be sure you follow APA sixth edition guidelines for style and formatting throughout your assignment.
Failure to enter decisions to the simulation on time will result in default values being entered for your company for the periods, as well as a significant grade penalty.
You may select one person to capture the decisions from the simulation. However, each team member must submit the decisions to this assignment to receive the team grade.
WRITER Be sure the document and submits includes the following:
• Your team number, the airline name, and the names of all team members.
• Your airline’s mission or philosophy.
• A recap of your airline’s status and whether the results from previous periods were as you intended.
• The decisions your team made in Periods 7 and 8.
• A rationale for each decision that details why the decisions were made and what you hope to accomplish. In your rationale, be sure to answer the following questions:
• How did the competitive business environment guide your decisions and planning?
• What were the expected results of your decision?
• What factors influenced your decisions and how did you prioritize those factors?
Note: For this team decision, you are not required to provide references to support your decisions and rationales. This should give you more time to work on the Final Capstone Proposal – Individual assignment.
