Merging paradigms: Decision Making, Management, and Cognitive Control

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


    The paper discusses the trend in paradigms within decision research, drifting from concepts of decision making in terms of normative models of 'rational decision making, through behavioral models in terms of 'biases' - deviations from rational models, toward models of actual decision making behavior, such as the SRK concept, naturalistic decision making, and dynamic decision making.In this evolution, concepts such as decision making, management, and behavioral control merge and a concurrent change in concepts underlying design of systems aiming at control of behavior is visible, from instruction and punishment, through design to remove human biases and error, toward control by proper shaping of the conditions controlling human adaptation under environmental stress.The implications for risk management strategies in a dynamic society under competitive stress is discussed.
