Decision making in organizations is often pictured as a coherent and rational process in which alternative interests and perspectives are considered in an orderly manner until the best choice is selected. Yet, as most experienced members of organizations will attest, real decision processes seldom fit such a description. This book brings together researchers who focus on cognitive aspects of decision processes, along with those who study organizational aspects such as conflict, incentives, power and ambiguity. These multiple perspectives are intended to further our understanding of organizational decision making. Contributors often cite specific cases, and all foundations of organizational decision making are covered in considerable detail.

Book Description:

Decision making in organizations is often pictured as a coherent and rational process in which alternative interests and perspectives are considered in an orderly manner until the optimal alternative is selected. Yet, as many members of organization have discovered, real decision processes in organizations only seldom fit such a description. This book offers a more realistic account of decision making in organizations by highlighting several aspects such as the salience of incentives, the pervasiveness of conflict, and the role that power and politics play in organizational decision making.

Review:

"[A] terrific book... It contains the seeds for numerous dissertations- questions begging to be examined more closely. Whether you simply want to understand current thought about organizational decision making or are looking for promising research opportunities, this book is the place to look." American Journal of Psychology

"Organizational Decision Making is a superb collection, perhaps the best [of its kind] to date...highly relevant to both business and law." Cass Sunstein, University of Chicago

"An excellent reflection of the field, containing many novel and compelling insights. I encourage all scholars of decision making to read the book and to engage in the debate about the nature and future of the field." Administative Science Quarterly

"For any scholars who are interested in the process of decision making within organizations, Organizational Decision Making is required reading, for it covers the breadth of the field extremely well. " Contemporary Psychology

"Succeeds in offering the reader a varied perspective of organizational decision making....Should be well received in the fields of business and the behavioral sciences....Not only explains what research on organizational decision making can do now but also what it offers for the future." Applied Cognitive Psychology

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Decision making in organizations is often pictured as a coherent and rational process in which alternative interests and perspectives are considered in an orderly manner until the optimal alternative is selected. Yet, as many members of organizations have discovered from their own experience, real decision processes in organizations only seldom fit such a description. This book brings together researchers who focus on cognitive aspects of decision processes, on the one hand, and those who study organizational aspects such as conflict, incentives, power, and ambiguity, on the other. It draws from the tradition of Herbert Simon, who studied organizational decision making's pervasive use of bounded rationality and heuristics of reasoning. These multiple perspectives may further our understanding of organizational decision making. Organizational Decision Making is particularly well suited for students and faculties of business, psychology, and public administration. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521890502
