Decision Making and Training: A Review of Theoretical and Empirical Studies of Decision Making and their Implications for the Training of Decision Makers.
Nickerson, R. S.; Feehrer, C. E.
Theoretical and empirical studies of decision-making were reviewed to identify results applicable to training decision-makers. The review is organized in terms of the following component tasks: information gathering, data evaluation, problem structuring, hypothesis generation, hypothesis evaluation, preference specification, action selection, and decision evaluation. Implications of research findings for each task are described. It is concluded that decision-making is not sufficiently well understood to permit the design of an effective general-purpose training system, but that systems and programs could be developed for training in specific decision-making skills.
