Duration of Organizational Decision Processes in Organizations in View of Simulation Calculations

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


This article deals with the time course of decision processes in organizations. The interaction of important determinants of collective decision-making is analyzed using a simulation model. The results show that the course of decisions is largely determined by structural parameters, which can only be influenced to a limited extent, thus, paradoxically, escaping the direct effects of willful decision-making. The presentation of results is supplemented by considerations regarding the effectiveness of the simulation method.
