Decision Making: 1269254

Type of information needed to gather for PPO.

The manager needs to decide first the PPO type which best fits the need. For that manager, they will need to file a petition with a court of law. At this, the manager can work with a Do-it-Yourself PPO which is a tool to help in creating a petition for any of the PPOs they want to acquire (MSBF, 2020). The PPO forms are obtainable from a court clerk. One fills the PPOs legibly and completely and in it, you can also attach other sheets of paper to that form.  This petition will be used in giving a judgment whereby the judge will obtain essential information they require to make a decision whether or not to give the manager the order they want (ehealth, 2020).

Biases and traps that should be avoided.

Information overdose trap; this occurs when one fails to set limits in gathering information which makes it hard to process or separate between the relevant from the extravenous information.

Anchoring trap; Occurs when someone latches onto the first information they find and uses them to make decision.

Status quo trap; this is a tendency which occurs when one maintains things as they are even if they will not add any value to them.

Loss aversion trap or sunk cost trap; occurs with the innate tendency when one faces loss to experience strong emotions hence outweighing the positive emotions attached with gains.

Confirming evidence trap; this type occurs when one gives too much weight on the evidences supporting a view already considered and it has no enough contradictory evidence weight (Snow, 2019).

The biases, and potential consequences of the alternative PPOs

Acquiring in-house solutions

The best way to deal with any issue is the people experiencing the problem to come together and deal with their issue. This is because of their better understanding of the problem and the ability to pilot their solution of the problem to see it ability of solving the problem or not and change the solution if persistent.

The potential consequence is that due to the absence of an expert, the best solution may never be reached at. This process may use resources and the solution may never be arrived at (Robinson, 2012).

Collaborating with the stakeholders

The stakeholders and the main direction givers in any organizational set up are able to provide the final say if the problem are financial related. Collaborating with the organizational stakeholders will help in provision of ideas that will help with resource mobilization. This will provide a platform to easily deal with the problem.

The potential problem is that the collaborating with the stakeholders may delay the process of solving the problem and also cause the stakeholders to lack confidence with the running management of the organization.

Practicing safe methods

Amidst problems in an organization, practicing the safe methods of avoiding such problems and uncovering other issues may deal with the organizational problem on period. Safe methods would bring all the concerned members to provide their desires allow the management to deals with the issue on a small pace.

The potential consequence is that the accumulation of issues often causes more burden at the end.

Advocating stricter regulations and limits of legal on the company

The legal mandate in an organization will seek the truth and just grounds in which processes undergo. Limiting the legal operations of the organization and seeking stricter regulations will ensure the company limits the resource use and avoided problems by ensuring the regulations are followed well (Romero, 2017).
