1. The three central decisions that needed to be made in this scenario are:
a. To expand on the ChargeUp product line with a new item called ChargeUp with Lipitrine.

c. To decide WHO was to make decisions within the organization.

-Potentially dangerous if not recalled
-Potential legal action if not recalled
3. We would recommend using the Garbage Can model for this decision making process, because this process has a wide variety of viewpoints and opinions and has multiple decisions to make. It also allows the decision makers to focus on how chance plays a role in the decision and instead of one decision made by one person, it focuses on any number of decisions made by multiple people.
This scenario focuses on a couple of different problems (product recall and the consequences that follow) and there is a large number of employees making decisions.
