They also consider several other issues that include levels of analysis, the impact of perspective, and the treatment of time. In Chapter 21, Paul C. Nutt offers several new approaches to the study of process, applied to decision making. Nutt contrasts process with structure and shows how research into both is required before an action theory of decision making can be formulated. The focus of the chapter is on investigating process, which has been neglected in the past. Discussion links process research in decision making to several emergent theories found in other fields that consider process.

Fredrickson (1985) classified process by its comprehensiveness. Bell et al. (1998) identifies rational, comprehensive, political action, and subunit involvement processes. Others treat process as coalition formation or social process control and focus on measuring decision-maker attributes such as tolerance for ambiguity, uncertainty, or risk aversion (Poole and Van de Ven, 2004). Although interesting, such research says little about how decisions are and should be made. Classifications, such as comprehensive, analytical, or political, fail to explain how a decision maker acts comprehensively, conducts analyses, or engages politically.

This allows the 16 PAUL C. NUTT AND DAVID C. WILSON researcher to determine if one kind of action taking works best under a particular set of conditions. Two kinds of contingencies are recommended for such studies: content and context. Content. Content identifies the decision type. A variety of decision types has been studied. g. , 1997). This limits the purview to core business choices made by top management teams. As noted above, Mintzberg et al. (1976) in their seminal work call strategic decisions important choices that have long-term consequences due to the resources required and precedents set.
