The use of insight in management decisions
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis hypothesizes that insight is the key element in effective decision-making. It approaches this position by developing a basic model of the environment in which a manager functions, showing the resources at his disposal. It then describes the contributions of the technologies which form the knowledge base for decision-making. Next, it distinguishes between intuition and insight, and demonstrates that it is insight which is the basis for the effective manager's art.
