Track Title : Decision-making in organizations: unlocking their potential
Decision-making is a new track in EGOS.
We invite papers from colleagues whose research interests include decision-making to contribute to this new track. In the spirit of EGOS we take an inclusive approach, embracing psychology-based perspectives, sociology-based perspectives, and economics-based perspectives.
Our criteria are based on the conference theme of unlocking by helping both scholars and managers to unlock an organization's potential through a study of decision-making: looking at models, processes and influences.
We welcome papers that adopt quantitative, qualitative, and anecdotal approaches; experimental designs; multilevel studies as well as studies at the individual, team, organizational and industry level. We locate our framework in the cognitive work of March (1994) and the research agendas that his scholarship has produced and the work of those colleagues developing the judgement and decision-making frameworks of Kahneman & Tversky (1979) , recently captured in Schneider & Shanteau (2003) .
Our major theme is about the importance of decision making in organizations.
Subthemes to this question include:
Please come and join us in some stimulating exchanges of thoughts unlocking decision-making across disciplines. The track will follow the traditional EGOS format whereby your paper will be debated by other discussants. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
