 K1 PHILOSOPHY
    OF VALUES
* Why begin with values? Most Business Strategy & Policy Course do not.
   A. Christians put values first. P = (f)V

* The Philosophy of Values the most important subject humans can study.
  In Business and Management we approach it by focusing on:
           - Values Analysis
           - Relationship of values to outcomes
           - Values Conflicts
           - Absolute versus negotiable values
           - Sources of individual, group, organizational, cultural values
           - Systems Improvement within a preferred values set
           - Limits and Dangers of Values Analysis
           - The Basic Values Model
           - Pathological versus Constructive Values
           - Values and Management Theory


K20 RESEARCH THEORY
* The 3 Basic Research Approaches:
           - Behavioral Research
           - Values Research
           - Normative Research

* The 3 Places to Research:
           - Libraries
           - The Minds and Memories of People
           - The Internet

* Differences Among Sciences
          - Business & Management as an Applied Science
          - Must include Normative Research

K35 DECISION MAKING & POLICY ANALYSIS

          - The Policy Sciences
