"Not a particularly interesting book, but no problems during the order process."

Judgment in Managerial Decision Making: 3 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


In situations requiring careful judgment, every individual is influenced by their own biases to some extent. With Bazerman's new seventh edition, readers can quickly learn how to overcome those biases to make better managerial decisions. The book examines judgment in a variety of organizational contexts, and provides practical strategies for changing and improving decision-making processes so that they become part of one's permanent behavior.
