About the Authors
  • This long-awaited textbook provides a unified perspective of a rich and varied field. Using a set of illustrative examples, Decision Sciences synthesizes current research about different types of decision making, including individual, group, organizational, and societal. Special attention is given to the linkage between problem finding and problem solving. The principal message emerging from the book is that decision making entails a complex set of processes that need to be understood in order to develop sound prescriptions or policy advice.

    • A major textbook on a key new area for psychology and business studies
    • Authors are major names in the field
    • Decision sciences is a new field still undersupplied with textbooks

It stresses the need to understand the decision process and integrates this with descriptive insight and prescriptive guidance to make wise decisions. Decision Sciences has defined the field."
