A Field Evaluation of Perspectives on Organizational Decision Making.
Pinfield, Lawrence T.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v31 n3 p365-88 Sep 1986
A field study of Canadian Government bureaucracy illustrates two perspectives on strategic decision processes. Processes follow a structured progression or are anarchic, wherein decisions are inferred from outcomes of fortuitous combinations of events. Both perspectives facilitate processual understanding but fail to specify the influence of participation and contextual dependence. (CJH)
