Decision tree for neurological and musculoskeletal | NURS 6521 – Advanced Pharmacology | Walden University
Another decision which yielded results not initially anticipated was my choice to cut funding for public transportation in order to fund additional police presence. Initially, this seemed like an effective way of improving security on the streets; however, once implemented it led to increased crime rates as fewer people had access to reliable transportation options thus making them more vulnerable targets. This difference between expectation and reality serves as an important reminder of how complex social problems can be and how careful consideration must go into any proposed solution.
Overall, while some of my decisions resulted in outcomes approximating what I expected them too, others produced completely unexpected results – demonstrating just how difficult predicting long-term impacts can be when it comes to tackling complex social issues such as those presented here. Thus it is important for leaders engaged in policy formulation or problem solving exercises such as this one take into account all likely scenarios before deciding upon a course of action so that optimal solutions may be created which benefit all parties involved without unintended consequences occurring down the line.
