Abstract
The emphasis of this research is to leverage Knowledge Flow Theory to enhance extant Decision Theory and decision support systems to improve the decision-making process in military organizations in general and to outline a research agenda for subsequent application to the Hellenic Navy. Thus, the challenge of this research effort is to expose the major factors that define the problem of the decision maker for correct decisions through their synthesis. The areas of the dynamic knowledge as well as the mental models have special gravity among the military personnel since they determine the decision making process. Therefore, the intention of the author will be to conduct an introduction of the existed literature and provide greater fidelity and insight into the mechanism within which the emerging technology can either support or in some cases improve our decisions. Hence, the basis of this thesis is to enlighten the technological approach for timely integrated decisions. The method that will be followed focuses on theoretical integration and is expected to result in a general decision-making process for the military that reflects explicit incorporation of Knowledge Flow Theory.
