Decisions in Paradise: How To Be, or Not To Be
My name is Nik. I spell my name a little differently. But, with so many folks named Nicholas, Nicolette, Nicole, Nikoleta, Nikola, and more, I figure I’d let people guess.
Like everyone else, I periodically imagine what paradise on Earth would be for me. In my imagination, my trip to paradise includes having a wonderful, loving relationship, finishing my college degree, getting a meaningful job, seeing some of the rest of the world, and getting my dog, Leonard, housebroken. …

After Alex’s introduction to Kava, reviewing the potential risk associated with our location and thinking I’m showing Alex my great observation skills, I declare, “That’s why the mess all around here. Some disasters hit this place. Right?”
Alex’s eyes spoke, “No kidding, slugger.” But kinder and more informative words came from Alex’s mouth that said, “No, not some disaster. It was some disasters—fastballs being thrown from all sides, so to speak.”
I asked my first stupid question, “What kind of disasters have they had here?”…

Factors affecting decision implementation in an organization and the proposed solutions

The people of Kava face many challenges ranging from tsunamis to confrontation on the basis of ideologies and cultural differences. The people of this island, like everyone else in our world, face the problem of HIV aids and poverty-related problems. In efforts to help the people of Kava, there are many factors that need to be considered before the proposed solutions can be regarded as workable.


            One of these factors is the ability to cope with the economic and social hardships that prevail here. The employees should be briefed about the challenges that they are going to face while working in a Kava-based organization. The people of Kava are of diverse origins and backgrounds. The prevailing sentiments of intolerance that prevail in this island pose many challenges for non-profit organizations that are striving to offer assistance to local people.

            Faced with these challenges, the approach that the employees of this organization adapt is critical. Empowerment is a critical factor not only for local communities but the people who work here. Coping strategies that are necessary for employees should be enshrined into the organization’s mission statement. The leaders in the organization should motivate staff as well as equip them with the right training to deal with local challenges.

            Fifty percent of Kava’s population comprises people who are aged 15 and below. Therefore, this is an exceptionally young population. In a few years’ time, Kava will be facing severe unemployment challenges. In efforts to maintain economic development, the local government needs to engage all stakeholders. The effectiveness of the organization’s mission depends on the willingness of the Kava government to create an enabling environment for it to operate. If the government maintains viable administrative structures at the grassroots level, it will be easy for the organization to operate at this level. This is because it will be easy to access human and logistical resources as well as social support systems that become available when the government’s resources are taken closer to the people.

Evaluation of the resources and actions needed for decision implementation of the proposed solutions

            The director of strategic planning at the organization believes that instead of avoiding, ignoring or denying disasters, people and organizations should turn them into opportunities. In order for disasters to be turned into opportunities, and evaluation of the available resources is necessary. Kava is endowed with many resources. If they are utilized well, they could provide the young population of this country with a livelihood.

            The economy of Kava is endowed with many resources including tourism, fishing, sugar, bananas, spices, coffee, spices, natural gas, and petroleum. Additionally, there is cheap, quality labor. The government should carry out an analysis of the areas of there economy where the greatest potential lies. An accurate evaluation of each of the sector economic viability is necessary, mainly through the analysis of the government statistics.

            Tourism appears to have great potential for generating foreign exchange for the people of Kava. This is because of the diversity of the people of Kava. Additionally, many South Pacific nations have a thriving tourism industry. Kava can develop her tourism industry so that it can resemble that of the neighboring countries.

            The young people of Kava should use the diversity of their cultures to attract many tourists. Additionally, the cultural diversity of the people here can be used to generate different solutions to the perennial problems to which everyone has become used. The organization should engage all communities in dealing with problems such as tidal waves, hurricanes, typhoons, fires, floods, and earthquakes. The organization should play a coordinative and advocacy role. This role should involve uniting the communities while at the same time bringing Kava’s problems to the attention of the world in order to attract donor assistance.

According to Pfeffer& Sutton (2005), the best way to bridge the knowledge-doing gap is to prevent talking to substitute for action. When people are able to act and take responsibility for helping others, they are able to meet new challenges. Through a hands-on approach, they can work tirelessly without waiting to be told what to do. Inculcating a spirit of volunteerism among local people in tackling local challenges may help solve many social problems.

An Evaluation of ethical implications from stakeholders’ perspectives of the proposed solutions

The understanding of Kava’s problems by various stakeholders may vary depending on personal experiences. Therefore, one would expect different stakeholders to hold different views on what the right course of action should be. This can have many ethical implications on the perspectives adopted with regard to the proposed solution.


First, the government of Kava may be opposed to social-structural changes that are too revolutionary for fear of losing control and influence among local people. Owing to the cultural diversity of Kava people, not all economic activities will seem acceptable to them. For instance, some tourist activities may be frowned upon by conservative communities.

The problem of social stratification raises ethical concerns in every community today. These concerns seem to differ depending on whether an organization is successful or not (Deshpande, 1996). The research that Deshpande (1996) carried out showed that many successful managers are perceived as ethical. However, managers were seen to be less optimistic about any relationship between ethical behavior and success. The only exception was for successful managers, who perceived a strong link between ethical behavior and organizational success.

Ethical behavior is a key factor for a nonprofit organization’s success in a place like Kava. Professional ethics should be adhered to in all aspects of the non-profit organization, including finance, purchases, strategic planning, marketing, human resources, organizational processes, and technology. Ethical behavior is needed for the organization’s mission is to be accepted by the people of Kava.
