Abstract : This is a review of the state of the art about research on organizational decision-making. Individual and small group decision-making are considered only in the context of organizational issues. The nine chapters deal with what is known about the nature of organizational decision processes, research methods and available models, problem discovery and diagnosis, search and design processes, evaluation and choice processes, choice conflict, constraints, decision support systems and suggestions for needed research including a model for examining the backward as well as the forward causal linkages in the organizational decision process.
