This article outlines major historical developments that have shaped organizational decision research and highlights themes focusing on organizational decision making. Several of the themes have been visible for many years; these raise questions about decision makers' rationality, their heuristics and simplifications, their political behaviors, and their interpretations of experience. Other themes, however, are nascent ones that promise to become more visible in the future; these deal with decision makers' expertise, intuitions, and emotions.
