It spells out the full dimensions of such a model, tracing the historical and contemporary roots and extent of more partial efforts to use the same model. The major part of the volume illustrates the application of this model to the decision-making conduct of senior executives in enterprises. The data from the theatre and organizations is particularly rich and unusual in resulting from first-hand observation of situations rarely open to social scientists. Students, researchers and consultants in the field of organizational behaviour will find here a fresh and powerful framework for analysis, and a wealth of perceptive insights into organizations.
